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
