Maybe CC or write to avr32 at atmel.com ?

Yeah. But since I guess it is all gpl licenced software, wouldn't it be 
possible for the buildroot team to download the zip, repack it in single zips 
and host/mirror them on the buildroot mirrors? Or atleast the toolchain parts 
of the zip?

I know it's not a good option, but maybe it would ease the life of the 
buildroot devs (i.e. you and peter :P)

I know that form, and even if it looks like it is mandatory, it is not, just 
click continue - even hotlinking would be possible.

Thanks,
Peter
