Due to some holidays I expect more feedback within 2 weeks from now.

Canadian build still not functional since we have conflicts with
building GCC for baremetal in canadian build, it seems that some
HOST-tools/libs are build with BUILD-system flags which makes the
build fail. It might be that those failing tools/libs do not need to
be build at all.
We will continue with it after about 2 weeks from now. Canadian for
bare metal is a wish for us at the moment, but I foresee that it can
become mandatory within a few months.
Newlib support is working after disabling --with-arch ;-)
Patches will be posted after they are stable and that will be after
the holidays... :-)

Kind regards,
