Re: fedora for ARM

You can handle this, to an extent, with the target triplet- arm-linux-gnu is pretty generic, so it's better to have names like armv5l-linux-gnu (little endian) armv5b-linux-gnu (big endian), armv5l-softvfp-linux-gnu (little endian soft floating point). It can get pretty long. That said, I don't see anywhere in the near future that Fedora is going to support a multitude of arm variants. Big and Little endian with an implicit baseline (v5?) is probably enough distinction for a while to come.
