I am here and happy help when you are ready.

I see no need to replace Microwindows build system, but it assumes too
much and forces settings such as CC and CFLAGS. For example forcing the
host compiler to gcc means you cannot use FreeBSD. The default for CC
should be cc.

I think we should look at cleaning the RTEMS support to allow settings
to be applied externally via environment or command line variables
rather than embedding the details in Microwindows.

The RTEMS support in the Microwindows build system uses and
the files I reviewed had explicit paths to libraries. I prefer this not
be used when building within the RSB and we clean up this area and I am
happy to help.
