Thanks; glad to know I'm not missing something!

Yes -- and, since my baseboard file is doing its own SSH calls, it's
pretty trivial to just put in an environment variable setting on the
target as part of that call.  (In fact, I did that yesterday evening,
and it worked fine.)

I was just hoping I could teach the upstream GCC testsuite to do that
on _all_ remote targets, and that doesn't look very possible.  I guess
this goes on the wishlist for Rob's proposed rewrite.  :)

Thanks again,
