Any new port should have support added to build-many-glibcs.py for all
ABIs supported by the port (e.g. both endiannesses, if you support both BE
and LE, and any other ABI variants).
You should make sure that produces clean test results for all the
compilation tests, for all those variants.
You should also include results for the full testsuite, including
execution tests (whether testing natively, or cross testing with
test-wrapper set to execute tests for a cross build), in the submission of
the port (and those should be as clean as possible).
Any new port should be added to the list in README, and have a NEWS entry
