The build farm uses gcc version 2.95.1 19990816 (release).  I believe this is 
the version the Netwinder site mentioned as well.

That would be great!  I had suspected that some direct framebuffer code had to 
exist somewhere (I wasn't sure if the SqueakNOS folks had gotten that far yet).

I was wondering about the relationship of the iPaq to the Itsy...it is a 
direct relative is it not?  The Linux build I'm using is called 'Bitsy'.
