i486 Solaris 2.5 / embedded m68k cross compiler needed

     We are already up and running on the VME board (which is from PEP, not 
     Moto.  PEP supplied the BSP), using the PEP/Wind River-supplied tools 
     for a Sparc/Solaris 2.5 cross m68K PEP VME.  The problem is that we 
     need to do field support for some of our products, and we don't have a 
     portable Sparc.  We have a PC-based laptop running Solaris 2.5.  The 
     missing link is the i486/Solaris-m68K cross compiler.
     I haven't called the folks at Wind River, but I've been told that they 
     don't currently support Solaris running on Intel hardware.

If you are a VxWorks customer, they should be able to supply Gnu 
toolchain -- cross compiler, assembler, run-time libraries, linker, 
debugger, etc.  You could build them yourself, but Wind River supplies 
the Gnu tools routinely for their OS.  The trickiest part is the cross 
debugger, but they do that too.  I trust you are using some kind of 
MVME board from Motorola, and that there is a BSP available for it.
