I recently adopted and updated the following orphaned packages:
   - cross-arm-none-eabi-binutils
   - cross-arm-none-eabi-gcc
   - cross-arm-none-eabi-gdb

Two packages from the cross-arm-none-eabi-* series remain as orphans in 
the AUR:
   - cross-arm-none-eabi-gcc-base
   - cross-arm-none-eabi-newlib

In the past, the cross-arm-none-eabi-gcc-base package was used to 
bootstrap the GCC compiler for the ARM EABI target, which is no longer 
needed [1].

The cross-arm-none-eabi-newlib package was then built using the 
cross-arm-none-eabi-gcc-base package, which is no longer needed because 
my PKGBUILD does a combined source tree build, where the compilation of 
newlib is integrated with the GCC autotools build.

Please remove the no longer needed cross-arm-none-eabi-gcc-base and 
cross-arm-none-eabi-newlib packages.
