Someone mentioned Cygnus was building a GUI code/makefile browser.
That sounds pretty neat and might handily address the desire for a GUI
debugger that ghost had.  Good GUI-based programming tools are
generally not available in the free software world.  Can I get a copy
of this tool for ftp prices?

The entire Cygnus lineup is not up for ftp.  I believe it used to be.
