anybody has some GCC or any other tool chain for the above?
Or some pointers, which was the last version of the GCC tool chain

Thanks in advance!
pick together something like a sunos 5 or sunos4 machine and build the
tool-chain on that ?
I don't know how old a GCC you can build on current machines. The other way around,
yes. But it's hard to see why old on new would be a problem. You can grab any GCC
version you want and try it yourself.
As for when i860 disappeared, no idea. The release notes would say, so you could search
those. Or the ChangeLogs. A quick scan says that i860 support was removed in 2002, put
back in 2003. The newest reference is in 2005. So if you grab a 2004 release of GCC
it's likely to have the support.
Similarly, FWIW, I see references to i960 in the 2003 ChangeLog.
