OSE is an RTOS from Enea (www.enea.com).  Currently, is compatible
with Diab and Greenhills on the PowerPC and uses either Microsoft VC++
or GNU for their soft kernel, a Windows NT simulator. 

I was hoping someone had already gone through the trouble to figure
out how to build OSE with the GNU tool chain for a PowerPC target.
