It does. In fact RTEMS was something I wanted to set up within the
builder but didn't have the time (yet). So you may well get a ping from
me on this at some point.
It's interesting primarily because it goes beyond just compiling libgcc
and newlib -- which gives deeper testing of the code generator for the
appropriate targets and opens the possibility of doing simulator testing.
