GCC port for Intel 8086, 80186 and 80286 (not included yet) (Announce)

Unlike the experimental, alpha patch that DJ Delorie semi-baked up a while back, this is a newer attempt by Rask Ingemann Lambertsen to utilize GCC for 16-bit cpus (targeting ELF only??). It isn't accepted into the GCC tree yet (if ever?), but it seems interesting enough to mention here (for the curious):

Personally, I think Dev86DOS, OpenWatcom, Turbo C, Micro-C, etc. are good enough for me for now. (At least, I ain't messing with no stinkin' patches for something so complex, ugh.)
