What I would find useful is one that tests the various return
value locations, and that covers the different psABIs.  I have an
example file that's at least a good start.

Anyway, I can provide binaries for at least the following Debian arches:
- amd64 (x86_64)
- armel
- armhf
- hurd-i386
- i386
- ia64
- kfreebsd-amd64
- kfreebsd-i386
- mips
- mipsel
- powerpc
- s390
- s390x
- sparc
- sparc64

And probably for some of those too:
- arm
- alpha
- hppa
- m68k
- powerpcspe
- ppc64
- sh4

It's just a matter of collecting the sources files, and how you
want it compiled.
