Looks good to me. There is one little note though: When writing the
original linux.mk, solaris.mk and macosx.mk files I tried to keep them
as close as possible, so that one could vimdiff/meld/kdiff them and
merge changes from one platform to another. I did not move out
unxgcc.mk back then, because the only non-linux gcc platform was OSX --
and OSX is quite different with its insane linking style.

So I am still a bit unsure about separating unxgcc.mk out. Do
you intend that file to also be used by OSX? Whatever we do here it
will be wrong in some ways and right in others.

So: splitting out the linux-ARCH.mks is great, and about the unxgcc.mk
stuff I dont have a firm opinion.

Just my 2 euro-cent.

Best Regards,
