  Nah, not really.

  I don't suppose it could actually save you very much, anyway.

  All the executables are target-specific.  All the libraries are
target-specific and all the include files are target-specific.

  That doesn't leave a whole lot to share apart from the man and info pages.
And as it happens, the info pages are shared already!

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
