 I've just read the documentation you've pointed me to and learned
about this whole new world of advanced facilities for automated
testing I couldn't believe possible.

 I've run make check sometimes and I knew something about dejagnu, but
I couldn't imagine how far the cross developement tools had got.

 Forgive me for language, but I think this way of doing regression
tests over simulators using a combined tree seriously kicks ass! ;-)

 I've seen it's rather complicated. Too bad gcc/binutils/gdb don't
share a single CVS tree.

 I see. There's an interesting ColdFire emulator which is even able
to run uClinux:

But I guess making it work with gcc's test infrastructure requires a
lot of integration. It would really be too far away from my original
project ;-)
