Fyi, native gcc-4.6 packages based on upstream trunk, installable on maverick
and natty can be found at
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-toolchain-r/test/ubuntu maverick main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-toolchain-r/test/ubuntu maverick main
The armel build should finish tomorrow. Testsuite results for arm and thumb mode
are included in the build log and in the package's doc dir.
Issues on ARM are:
- gccgo build failure (http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=46958)
- gnat build failure
- quadmath support (needed, wanted?)
