Can't help with those, but I just built both COFF and ELF versions for
SCO OpenServer 5 and used the assembler to rebuild itself.   I realize
this is not an exhaustive test.   Since this is an x86 UNIX, it may 
help your confidence on those targets.

I have used the 96q2 progressives much more and feel pretty good about
them.

The configure and build was nice and boring.   Excellent work, guys!

Other than the problem you and I discussed privately, I have only
a few documention patches to offer.

! SCO ELF support added.  For OpenServer 5 targets (i386-unknown-sco3.2v5.0.0)
! the default is to build COFF-only support.  To get a set of tools that
