Hello ,

I am bothering you again.
Related to gcc 2.95.2 --- it has any patches for porting to mips or not ? I 
mean ,
where do I find the patches for gcc-2.95.2 for mips if there are some files. I 
saw
that you said something like that "gcc 2.95.2 + CVS from 2.95 branch." What do 
you
mean ?

Regards,
Nicu
