  Please, don't read that as some kind of criticism!  I'm an old amiga
loyalist myself :) and as I said, I kinda liked the way it obliged you to
write good healthy code!

  Yep, and I would add vxWorks (some-but-not-all target/version
combinations) and probably also rtems (unverified) to that list;
mmu-less-ness is still the rule rather than the exception in vast sectors of
the embedded space.  But bear in mind that not all targets are also hosts
when it comes to gcc, which is all that matters in this context.  Is the
compiler meant to be hosted under ucLinux or any of those others?  I
couldn't find anything by googling:
