Yes. I didn't check it in with the rest. I'm revising the document
again and will post an updated patch shortly.

My experience is that the only reliable way to get a combined tree is
to use uberbaum. Other people seem to have better luck, but I will
not document or advocate the use of a procedure that has *never*
worked for me.
Further, I doubt my suggested procedure is any harder on the machine
than the existing one - even if gcc is checked out from subversions,
you still have to get binutils/gdb/sim/newlib from sources. (If this
is really a concern, we should get subversions to mirror the uberbaum
and/or src repositories.)

That looks like an accident.
