Fantastic news!

I have myself tried to build icedtea6 for armv5tel eabi for some weeks 
now using a fedora core 8 based buildsystem.
I have had a lot issues that my GCC 4.1.2 compiler mangles pointers with 
the -O3 optimization when starting the launcher.
Those errors disapeared with -O0 yet then i ran out of heap space when 
launching. Adding options to java like -Xms100M -Xmx600M did not solve 
my heapspace issues.

What version of gcc compiler and binutils did you use for your build?

Congratulations again for the sucessful ARM build!

Have a great day!
