Out of curiosity, would a sym link in the repo from src/gcc over to
egcs/gcc not fix the bulk of the problem? If it does, could that be
done to sync most of the files, with very little effort? It sounds
like if that were done, and a forced merge for include and maybe two
more symlinks for libiberty and include, that almost the entire
problem would be solved. From there, new modules work and
rationalizing the toplevel files, and testing, and then sym link from
cvs/egcs over to cvs/src would drive it the rest of the way home.
