Just because your running on Linux doesn't mean anything because your duplicating
the environment for cross-compiling anyway. So what does it matter if cygwin runs
the cross tools or if Linux runs them?

I'm curious ...

How many out there actually are compiling PPC code natively on a PowerPC Linux box for their embedded devices?

If so, do you run the same development versions on your desktop?

How do you handle the FPU issues?
