It worked for me ;-) (and yes I did apply patches here and there, but
they were not intrusive). But then, again, it also depends on what
"it" is. For me "it" == "DV and MPEG2".

I have an impression I've seen your name involved in quite a few
discussion around GCC in such a way that it almost implied you
being associated with GCC development somehow. Sorry if I mistook
you for somebody else.

Well, I'm really glad Diego took the charge of cleaning things up so
that certain things start working out-of-the-box. The only excuse I have
on not doing it myself could be that GNU asm support is still 
cooking up in Sun Studio and I didn't want to start the whole thing
before SS can do 100% of FFmpeg at least as good as GCC does it.

Yeah, that was kind of the idea ;-) Friends?
