Well, first of all, this is not exactly a bug, but I don't know where to
send messages of this sort so here goes...

One thing I have noticed about the GNU CC compiler is that for most of the
systems on which it will run, there is already a system C compiler.  One
notable exception to this is the version for the Intel 386 proccessor.  It
is possible to buy an 80386 box and a System V compatible operating system
withouty a C compiler.  It would be nice to have available a fully functional
version of GNU CC for the 80386.  This would include cc, as, ld and finally
the C library.

In the short term, are there any plans to add 80386 support to 'gas'?

On a final note, where is the appropriate place to send discussion of this

GAS support for the 386 is being implemented now by a volunteer.

I don't want to maintain any COFF support in GAS; this will not be
useful on GNU systems and I am not willing to let GNU staff time be
taken away by it.  Instead, I hope someone will sooner or later fix
the bugs in some programs we have that will make it possible to use
the GNU object file format on system V.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
