This is pretty neat.  Although, our focus is more on the bigger MIPS 
workstation, like the SGI stuff and even some of the Longsoon machines.  We 
actually have a separate team that focuses more on the embedded machines, 
including embedded ARM, MIPS, and other related equipment.

I'd post this to the gentoo-embedded list, and you might find a few people over 
there interested.  Some of the methods you used for building these packages, 
including any toolchain changes, eclass/ebuild changes, might be useful to them 
over there.


Thanks!
