For what its worth, I needed a cross compiler for a project so I spent
quite a bit of time and effort building up one. I don't really know what
I'm doing as far as building cross toolchains so I probably Did It
Wrong, and there's still a lot of rough edges, but it works and got the
job done.

Note that gcc by itself is pretty much useless, most of the effort
actually went in to building up a stack of fundamental libraries so that
you can actually DO something with it.

It would be a shame for all my effort to go to waste, but I alone can't
maintain this whole thing in Fedora...
