It would indeed be useful to have synchronized versions of the development tool chain for those shops that use Windows and Linux (or FreeBSD for that matter) as host platforms.

I don't see what the fascination of having a "WinAVR for Un*x" is all about. The magic which makes WinAVR is that the Un*x tools can be run on Windows.

Joerg Wunsch has already made a port of avr-gcc, avr-libc, avr-binutils, and avr-gdb to FreeBSD. Brian Dean's avrdude is equally available. Everything needed to automate the download and build is included on the base FreeBSD CDROM.

% su
# cd /usr/ports/devel/avr-libc
# make install && make clean

avr-libc will bring in avr-binutils and avr-gcc as prerequisites. Last time I tried the latex-based documentation would not build but was simple enough to disable and download prebuilt .pdf files.
