Indeed. You can always add yourself to "cc" on the bug. I saw some
other related bugs in my search, though they are "AIX"... that is
still "powerpc" (rs6000).

Also, Check the patches in comment #4.

As a related... but slightly off-topic thought... Another thing I'd
like to change about crosstool-ng: I dislike all these "for upstream"
patches we harbor in patches/. Maybe I'll work on a RFC on how we can
deal with them.

Cheers,

-Bryan
