An update.

Everything seems to function okay on my old clip+ (arm, sansa amsv2).
I'm also able to directly confirm that MIPS native and MIPS hosted
targets still work.

One user on IRC said the iHP-H120 (m68k) target seems to work. arm926
(ipod6g) also seems to be okay, modulo some intermittend bugs with SDL
games (like quake) that already emit a bajillion compile warnings. Most
worrisome, arm7tdmi (ipodmini2g) was completely broken. I belive that
was due to incorrect multilib configuration in my toolchain, but the
tester hasn't spoken back up since I rebuilt everything.

Meanwhile, I managed to get a GCC 4.9.4 sh compiler going, and after a
few minor code (and CFLAG) fixes, was able to successfully build the
archos targets. Only one user out there that expressed a willingness to
try that build, but no other feedback yet.

Back to the bit mines!
