Exactly. The 3 items, gcc, binutils and newlib they have a specific patch with the needed changes to make it work for the PS2. Upgrade them to a newer version is not an easy task and requires a lot of time and knowledge.

Will this be an active issue for people interested in port those tools to new versions, or can I close this issue?
