I generally just run "./configure --disable-werror" and let it select  
all the targets, but I have built "./configure  
--target-list=arm-softmmu" and such and run with just that, and system  
images booted fine. Why are you needing the user targets?

If it works on x86 and on powerpc you're probably good. (A little  
endian and a big endian. Arm would show up alignment issues.)

The old one's breaking on a toybox corner case during LFS build, I need  
to fix that before I can cut a release, and that's my short term goal  
before I spend too much time on this.

Because uClibc didn't have it. Presumably I can clean that out now...
