I did a quick test to see if I could configure binutils-2.9.1 and
egcs-1.1.2 to target the Mac; binutils was successful, but egcs failed
with the message 'Configuration powerpc-apple-macos not supported'. So
it appears that the compiler needs some more work done to it in order to
target the Mac.

In the meatime, I believe that Microsoft have a cross-compiler add-on
for Visual C++ that allows you to cross-compile applications for the Mac
on a Win32 host (and debug them remotely, as well), so this is probably
your best bet if you need to cross-compile from Win32.

I'm copying this to the crossgcc mailing list in case there's anyone
else out there who might know more about this and would care to comment.
