Thanks, Bill. I was afraid of that.

Any pointers on how to do this? I'm able to build llvm-gcc-4.2 x86 natively, 
but not the powerpc version. 
Using "--disable-shared --disable-multilib --disable-bootstrap" as additional 
flags, I've tried:


as the target, but powerpc* dies with rs6000.c and the CellSPU target wasn't 
recognized. Setting --with-sysroot didn't help either.
