This is good news.  Could you add to the shell Wiki entry for the 
MVME5500 I just created?  There is a section for Test Reports.  It is 
impossible to know what BSPs people are using and testing if notes don't 
get added to the Wiki.

Gcc 4.0.x is not intended for use with the 4.6 release series.  gcc 3.4 
and newer requier many small source changes to eliminate warnings and 
even to compile.
