Its been pretty well tested over the last 3 months... on a fair few
different platforms (sparc, alpha, powerpc, x86 ) of course some have been
tested more heavily than others ;-) ...

With the PLFS builds you'll find most stuff just builds, even the
development stuff.

At present
 - no changes reqd for gcc-3.3 CVS (apart from not using the mmap patch)
 - no real changes for cvs glibc (except no need to unpack linuxthreads)
   unless you use NPTL ( see Zack's hint )
 - binutils is sorted for both FSF and HJ
 - there is only a minor change to kernel header installation for 2.5.x

Have a play with it, you'll see most everything just hangs together ;-)
