About a decade and a half ago, I escaped that struggle. I've lost count
of the number of projects that have since used only the gnu toolchain,
across M68K, PowerPC, V850, and, AVR, that I can still remember.

The first step was always to build the cross-target toolchain from
source, and salt the source away for the life of the project, together
with newlib, or whatever was replacing glibc on the embedded target.
(Usually the work of a few hours - less if no config tweaks had to be
figured out for the build.) Then the RTOS.

There's enough to tackle on a new project, without ditching hard-won
toolset expertise as well.


Duct tape is like the force.  It has a light side, and a dark side, and
it holds the universe together.
