With the release of binutils-2.25 and newlib-2.2.0, I decided to give 
them a spin with gcc-4.9.2.

The following targets had issues with binutils, which are now fixed in 
git master:

* mep-elf:
* sh64-elf:

The following targets failed when building libgcc, newlib, or libstdc++, 
still unresolved:

* avr-elf:
* bfin-elf:
* cr16-elf:
* fr30-elf:
* iq2000-elf:
* m32c-elf:
* mep-elf:
* tic6x-elf:
* xstormy16-elf:

The following targets require patches to newlib:

* several wrt DESTDIR:
* sparc64-elf:

The following targets built successfully (after aforementioned binutils 
and/or newlib patches):

aarch64-elf aarch64_be-elf arm-eabi cris-elf epiphany-elf fido-elf 
frv-elf h8300-elf i386-elf ia64-elf lm32-elf m32r-elf m68k-elf mcore-elf 
microblaze-elf mips-elf mips64-elf mn10300-elf moxie-elf msp430-elf 
nds32be-elf nds32le-elf nios2-elf powerpc-elf powerpc-eabi 
powerpc-eabisim powerpcle-elf powerpcle-eabi powerpcle-eabisim rl78-elf
