Turns out that with Andreas Tobler we are in the lucky position to
have someone like that.  Andreas already contributed arm*-*-freebsd*
support, PIE support for FreeBSD, did some PowerPC work, and more.

So, today I am happy to announce that the steering committee has
appointed Andreas maintainer of the FreeBSD ports of GCC.

And I'd like to extend many thanks to Loren James for all his
contributions to libstdc++ and GCC on FreeBSD over many years.

Thanks a bunch, Loren, and happy hacking, Andreas!

Thank you!
