(Dropping the other lists since this is IA-64 specific)
Open64 is highly optimized for IA-64, but also needs a GCC front-end to
function. In regards to this there may be code or bug fixes floating
Currently the Open64 port to FreeBSD x86 isn't done, but has significant
progress. This was all held up for months because of me, but I now have
access to a few new c/c++ compiler test verification suits that will
help ensure the merge doesn't cause regressions. In the coming
weeks/months I'll try to get access to IA-64 and help out..
