Has there been some email I missed? [I was on vacation for awhile.]
I only found two problems. The readline one seemed trivially
fixable. Haven't put much thought into the other one
(top level configure specifying full path for --with-gcc-version-trigger
or some such, not bfd).
If this feature is removed (by the fact that bugs when found won't
be fixed) that'd be a great shame!
