There are some architectures that GCC supported in the past, but that
it has not supported for many years. The files containing machine
descriptions and related information have remained in the source tree,
which causes confusion since users and maintainers alike are unsure as
to the status of these ports.
Therefore, the Steering Committee has decided to remove these files.
Because the GCC project uses CVS, these files can always be
resurrected, if that proves useful in the future.
The machines in question are:
If you believe that there is a compelling reason why the files to
support these architectures should not be removed -- despite the fact
that they do not actually work with any recent version of GCC and that
the files will remain in CVS for posterity -- please let me know as
soon as possible by sending email to `firstname.lastname@example.org'.
