I've been using gcc-4.5.1 for the last two weeks or so. :) Should I add a ~mips keyword? > What's your target hardware for stabilization? Are we still focusing on SGI > stuff or moving on to newer platforms? SGI stuff is going to become less and less interesting, but it's still the most common MIPS hardware Gentoo users have . STMicroelectronics MIPS systems (Lemote, Gdium, etc) are becoming more common, and we should definitely do a better job supporting them. (I should mention that I've been loaned a Yeelong by Daniel Clark, of freedomincluded.com, to fix up the siliconmotion driver.) I think we can reasonably support both. The Broadcom board I have can with the switch of a jumper operate in big or little-endian mode, so I can use it for both.
