Re: [MiNT] Gentoo/FreeMiNT

There may be some minor overlap with the toolchain stuff, but the rest
is not common at all.
And isn't this everything about toolchain stuff? You say you want to make gentoo because of easy maintenance and so on. Those guys also have to solve things like own repository, automatic building of source packages (how do they do that? using cross compiler? aranym?), distribution of updates etc etc. And if, in the end, we use m68k-atari-mint-gcc and mintlib instead of m68k-unknown-linux-gcc and glibc, *this* is a minor thing. So it's maybe more similar than we think. I can imagine pretty well shared source-based repository with patches for each platform and separate binary-based repository which will be updated in the same way. Only (cross-)compiler / libc will be different. Sounds quite cool in my opinion.
