Keep also in mind that we've the cross-compiler for ARM directly built from the same gcc sources.
Yes, its possible and could be and interesting option. E.g. openSUSE has a way to do this
(package gcc is the switch/wrapper there). But that would mean: we'd have to provide that then for all
targets and as its build in OBS, we need the cross-compilers then, too.
-> (gcc45 + gcc44) * [ 1(i586) + 2(ARM/native) + 2(ARM/cross) ] -> 10 flavours to care about.
What about the upper-level sdk-tools ? Should they tool around 2 versions ?
That would produce even more flavours, different sysroot-tarballs and so on.
Isn't one of the mantras of MeeGo -> do it in one way ?
OTOH, I assume gcc45 will now last for quite some time - at least gcc46 is probably out after 1.3 release.
So it makes sense to use gcc45 now.
