I squirreled away a couple copies of CTOOLs when I was at Cygnus, but
I don't know if any were old enough to include Nindy sources still;
don't remember ever seeing actual Nindy sources.

IMHO we should officially declare Nindy support obsolete. As you observed,
Intel now denies its existence :-), the last physical board I knew of
(at Cygnus) died ca 1996, and the last couple of years of GDB churning
probably broke the Nindy support, but nobody appears to have noticed,
or cared enough to report it as a bug.
I could do the research to justify obsoleting Nindy, then you'd be free
to whack the dcache functions (remote-bug.c is also an obsoletion
