Very nice.

Any plans on how to patch the toolchain comfortably?

I'd really like to ditch devkitpro and be able to:

	$ cvs -d <dslinux repo host> co -P toolchain
	U toolchain/Makefile
	U toolchain/patches/patch-<descriptive-name-1>
	U toolchain/patches/patch-<descriptive-name-2>
	... etc.

	$ cd toolchain
	$ make install clean
	< lots of output >
	$ lean back and enjoy your new toolchain
	sh: lean: command not found

Now we just need someone to create all Makefile magic involved :)

 o This should not rely on devkitpro in any way (except adapting nice
   patches of theirs if any)
 o The build should abort properly on errors (devkitpro doesn't, which
   is a pita)
 o All needed distfiles should be downloaded automatically by default
   (if not present already).
 o The build should be able to resume where it aborted (which devkitpro's
   build script cannot do without being hacked - or at least I am not
   aware of a nice way to do this).

Since I know the nuts and bolts of automated packaging (I've worked
on a source-based linux distro before (don't ask, it never got anywhere
near public release)), and since I know what our toolchain needs to do,
I guess I will do this at some point if no one else beats me to it.
But this task takes lots of time and I don't have much of it at
the moment (as usual), so I thought I'd share the idea.
