I was looking for M16C toolchains about 16 months ago, but I
really wanted to use the medium memory model (32 bit function
pointers and 16 bit data pointers).  GCC doesn't allow that:
all pointers have to be the same size.  It didn't look like
using 32-bit pointers on the M16C would be very efficient.

I ended up using the H8 instead.  I'm using 32-bit pointers for
everything, but the H8 handles 32 bit pointers much better than
the M16C does. The gcc toolchain support is excellent.
