Of course. I have three 512k's (the second Mac model) and a Mac Plus
(the third or fourth model). All running just fine with no hard
drives.

Yes, a IIci and (soon) a Quadra (and non mac 68ks: VME and some Amiga) in a
production environment (compiler development)

Cheap, ideal testing equipment to stabilize the codegenerator for embedded
68k targets.

Yep, I still use my Quadras (900 & 950) and i'm switching them to linux asap
to build a new linux distro (zynot). The q950 was rencently used a a CAP
station with XPress3, word6, illustrator 3, photoshop 2.5 and so on. It's
not really comfortable but it can be useful.

1. What config are people using for gcc/gas etc?

Howdy.

I've been experimenting with setting up a cross development platform
using the varoius GNU tools.

I have built gcc (2.5.8), gas (2.3), binutils (2.4) and gdb (4.12),
all with sparc-sun-solaris2.3 as the host and m68k-sun-sunos4 as the
target.

I have been able to use gdb to talk to a remote stub on an EVS340.

The problem with m68k-sun-sunos4 as the target is that a.out is the
standard object format, which is ok for gdb to get debugging info
from, but utterly useless for downloading, as it lacks any information
on load address. Using the 'load' command in gdb happily tries to load
the code section at 0x2020, which is the address to load it on a
sun3. This, needless to say, is not what I had in mind, nor what the
EVS likes.

My workaround is to link it twice, once with S-records as the output
for downloading, and once with a.out format for gdb to get its info.

I know that COFF has enough info to be able to get the load address,
but what about the debugging support for gdb?
