- Clean up the sprawl of debian/rules. I'm sure there are neater
ways to do some of it; perhaps split it up into some more files?
- Make debian/rules control build the control file without unpacking
the sources or applying patches. Currently, it unpacks the sources,
patches them, creates the control file, and a subsequent
dpkg-buildpackage deletes the sources, re-unpacks them, and
- Reorganise debian/rules.defs to decide which packages to build in a
more straightforward and less error-prone fashion: (1) start with
all languages; override the list of languages depending on the name
of the source package (gcc-4.3, gnat-4.3, gdc-4.3, gcj-4.3). (2)
filter the list of languages depending on the target platform; (3)
depending on the languages to build, decide on which libraries to

- Done: Link the gnat tools with libgnat.so, instead of statically.
- Done: Build libgnatvsn containing parts of the compiler (version
string, etc.) under GNAT-Modified GPL. Link the gnat tools with it.
- Done: Build libgnatprj containing parts of the compiler (the project
manager) under pure GPL. Link the gnat tools with it.
- Done: Build both the zero-cost and setjump/longjump exceptions
versions of libgnat. In particular, gnat-glade (distributed systems)
works best with SJLJ.
- Done: Re-enable running the test suite.
- Add support for building cross-compilers.
- Add support for multilib (not yet supported upstream).
- gfortran man page generation
- build java-gcj-compat from the gcc source?
