I don't really see why not.

Does it matter? Far too much masturbation goes on around here.

I take that back, btw -- I've been fighting crosstool for a while this
morning and I still haven't managed to build a simple ppc->i686
crosscompiler. And I don't even want glibc -- I _only_ want to build
kernels. Not that that seems to be an option.

The whole incestuous gcc/libgcc/libc thing needs to be fixed up and made
relatively sane -- but that's outside the scope of this discussion, I
suppose.
