It's quite simple if you just follow the simtest-howto.html
instructions.  They're easily scripted; just copy from that
page.  That is, for existing simulator setups.  For nonexisting
ones, it wouldn't help very much with a single CVS tree anyway.
:-)  (There are "only" two trees -- not that a single tree isn't
the goal; the reasons it officially isn't are political.)

Looks promising.  Care to do it, or to outline such a project on

For reference: You mean making it work with dejagnu, newlib and
libgloss.  GCC doesn't have much to do with this part.  And
having done such work before, I kindly disagree it'd be much
work, but then again I'm not the one who'll do it for this
setup. :-)

Maybe, but very useful and valuable, particularly as a way to
make sure the coldfire support remains(?) working. 1/2 :-)
