GDB, and I suspect binutils, and just possibly newlib (true?), as part
of the release process does:
(it is so that the .info et.al. files can be generated). The problem is
that GDB no longer configures for the good old sun4.
This patch changes the system being used from "sun4" to "i686-pc-linux-gnu".
For binutils, can the release engineer give this a wirl.
For newlib, is this logic still used? Can that part of the file be removed?
We don't use it for generating our snapshot releases. If you are building
newlib on a native system, you have to specify --with-newlib in the
configuration, otherwise, it normally doesn't get built.
Once we've sorted things here I'll see about pushing this upstream into
GCC repository (gcc doesn't use this file).
The GCC repository doesn't contain it, either.
