As Thomas pointed out, I would be glad if someone ( you? :-) ) would
submit patches to support another architecture! That should be quite
easy, basically adding a file in config/arch/ and another one
in scripts/build/arch/ .

Basically, crosstool-NG started as a fork of (the original) crosstool;
over time it grew many enhacements. Unfortunately, lacking the appropriate
hardware (and time!) I can not test every architectures, so some archs
supported by crosstool have not yet been added/ported to crosstool-NG.
