What would be a suitable simulator target for a regression test?

I'm cc-ing Joel Sherrill, he has setup GCC tests for lots *-rtems targets for GCC and those use heavily GDB simulators. His testing process builds binutils, GDB and other stuff completely from source (I believe his test framework is even commited and documented somewhere, in addition to running on the compile farm :).

It looks like the m32r would be a good target.
