Ouch! In that case, I suggest that we try to put some collective
effort into getting something working with RSXNT. The only thing that
bothers me a little is that RSXNT isn't quite GPL compatible (you have
to pay a license for non-freeware usage) but I suppose that (a) it's a
very mild restriction, and (b) it can hardly be worse than shipping
GCC itself for RSXNT... There are certainly a lot of good things to be
said for using GCC throughout.
