A while back I gathered up all the dusty bits and put them in a 
directory.  I just
moved that directory to the ftp site -- /pub/c4x-tools.  Most of that is 
way out of date
but good reference material.

The gdb patch is against 4.16 so it definitely needs updating.  If you 
can get it updated,
we would be happy to get it back.  If the patch were updated to a recent 
gdb, then it wouldn't
be out of the question for there to be RPMs provided. 

FWIW /pub/plibm is Jennifer and my attempt to provide a libm for the 
tic4x target.  Since
it is not IEEE floating point, the old newlib versions didn't seem to 
want to port.  So we
put together a reasonable collection of libm in assembly or using VERY 
math formulas from high school to derive others.
