New compiler tools release: cris-dist-1.20

There's a new release of the compiler tools.  For GNU/Linux,
this release is expected to be used together with linux-headers
for linux-2.4.14 (included in cris-dist-linux-headers-1.20.tar.gz),
but there should be no issues using this release together with
older kernels.  It has been tested together with deboard_lx-R2_1_0.
No compatibility issues are expected from cris-dist-1.19 to
cris-dist-1.20; you do not have to re-build anything.

Upgrading is definitely recommended.

Binutils-related changes:

- A bug fixed related to the linker option --export-dynamics 
  (alias -E, alias gcc option -rdynamic), which caused pppd to
  be mislinked (getting a SEGV on startup) and "hello, world"
  linked with -E crashed the linker.

The compiler tools are available in five forms: as a source
SRPM, as a binary RPM, as a binary .deb package, Debian source
description and as "pure" sources; gzipped tar-balls.  The
binary RPM is suitable for i386-type host machines
(i[3456]86-pc-linux-gnu) running Red Hat Linux release 6.2 to
(at least) 7.2.  The Debian binary package is similarly suitable
for PC:s running releases starting with Potato to (at least)

The SRPM and RPM are available at:

The Debian binary package is at:

The Debian source package files (which require the source
tarballs below to be retrieved separately) is at:

The corresponding source tar-balls are in three parts at:

If you need to install from the tar-ball sources (though the
binary or source packages are strongly recommended), first
unpack the cris-dist-1.20.tar.gz tar-ball, then "cd cris-dist-1.20"
and unpack the latter two tar-balls in that directory.
Further installation instructions are available in the file
README in the cris-dist-1.20.tar.gz tar-ball.

Older releases are moved to the subdirectory "old"
("old/debian-dsc" for old Debian build description files) with
every new release.
