Buildall supports GCC only, and this is not likely to change.

The primary usecase for buildall is for my own GCC testing. All patches
are welcome, but I'm not likely to apply them if they make it harder to
use the tools for what their goal is. I'm certainly not going to apply
patches to other trees from the scripts, etc.

Buildall itself is still maintained. It does not get very many updates
but that is because it is close to perfect ;-)

On the other hand I'll be happy to help wherever I can. Just Cc: me on
whatever comes up.
