FWIW, I just tried building GCC 2.95.2 on my Linux

I can build the binutils around 2.32, emitting elf
No luck at all, getting gcc to compile. Support for the i860 was removed
very early after 4.0, going back to 3.x versions fails as they can't
compile on 64 bit systems. (and also never used ELF, but COFF?)
So stuck a little at the moment, I guess I have to install some linux 32
bit version, and try again ...
