We're currently testing binutils-2.17 and gcc-4.1.2 on avr32. I'll let
you know when we're confident that it's working properly, but at least
binutils seems to be working fine (I haven't gotten around to test gcc
myself yet.)

In the long term, we want to get support for avr32 upstream, but it
will probably take a while before we get everything sorted out.

In the mean time, you might want to check out the patches I've put up
at http://avr32linux.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/DevelopmentTools for
binutils 2.17 and gcc 4.0.4. Those are the patches I used to generate
the filesystem I'm currently using on my test system (using buildroot.)
