I'm not sure.

To do so would be very useful for the microblaze / uClinux community,
since currently we are unable to build our own toolchains, and are
somewhat reliant on Xilinx for that. We have the source, but aren't
really able to build it yet.

I don't think there's anything too radical in there, but I'm not a gcc
expert by any means.
