It can't without commercial software from one of our partners, no.

I'm 99% certain egcs-1.1.2 does not support constructor priority ordering
for powerpc-eabi. But you should be able to use either gcc-2.95 or the
eCos software tools we provide.

We've used it happily here on both Windows and Unix, so there really
shouldn't be any problems.

Hope this helps,
