I didn't take your comments as discouraging at all. you are just being honest and realistic, and i appreciate that.. it would be silly to have the expectation of having no issues at all, when substituting GCC with any other compiler for compiling the linux kernel...
When i get some free time, i will probably give it a shot. Maybe i will use a VM, and I can probably provide a decent bug report. but i will do some more investigating first. right now, im just happy to be able to use pathCC. I've already re-compiled a few libraries and applications with it, without too many hassles.
