Nope, though I might hack it in tonight... not much work

Only real change there is the specs handling.

Personally I have been waiting for gcc-4/glibc head to stabilise
before I bothered with it, most effort has gone into overhauling the
build method and making it rock-solid.

Along the way it solves pretty much all the deficiencies in plfs-style
builds, without sacrificing multilib support or resorting to stuffing
with the glibc build (the one package I refuse to hack).

I suppose though we'll need 2 host compilers, we'll need a 3.4 for
the kernel builds etc
( no biggie, will install them with
--enable-version specific-runtime-libs and --program-suffix set so
folks can switch between using CC="gcc -V 4.0" or CC="gcc -V 3.4.3" )

Cool, let us know how it goes...
patches more than welcome :-)
