DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2004-02
Heads up on binutils214
I am beginning to commit binutils214 stuff. The commits will run in
four stages and it isn't going to work until the last stage has been
The first stage committed tonight just brings in the build infrastructure
for i386. I hope to get the additional stages committed tomorrow but
I still have my work cut out for me:
stage 1: basic dfly build infrastructure for binutils
stage 2: add amd64 cross build and gdb support
stage 3: commit culled binutils-2.14 distribution from gnu as
contrib/binutils-2.14 and enable in buildworld.
stage 4: tie binutils-2.14 into the build system and make objformat
use it by default for gcc3 compiles.
I have managed to work up a pretty clean implementation. The intention
is to not have to modify the native gnu dist in contrib/ at all and
so far I am succeeding.
