As long as it compiles with GCC. There will probably be some stuff that doesn't work, must most should. Again, it's worth reading the Readme files for current caveats.

Some of those programs don't compile with GCC for various reasons (AWeb being a case in point - conversion of the source to GCC is one of the current aims), so they can't just be recompiled.
OTOH other programs can be recompiled without changing anything. It ought to be possible to recompile the entire GeekGadgets suite, for instance, as well as more Amiga-native stuff.

Held up by licensing issues. One of the third pary contributors has decided to withold granting their license at the 11th hour, pending "further clarification" of H&P's licensing of Kickstart, or lack thereof. Could be sorted in a week, or it might take a year. :(
Hopefully there will be some official clarification soon.
