- Subject: bfd and cygpath
Building bfd in a particular cross compiler scenario requires that
cygpath be set to "echo". bfd configury has the tools to do this, but
it's broken. Configure properly does this:
# test whether we have cygpath
if test -z "$CYGPATH_W"; then
if (cygpath --version) >/dev/null 2>/dev/null; then
But then fails to actually use that variable where it counts:
fix_srcfile_path='`cygpath -w "$srcfile"`'
and the subsequent build fails because of this.
I see this in the resultant configure, but I don't see how it is
getting into the bfd configure. There is a similar gcc bug here:
If it comes from libtool upstream, can somebody from binutils update
the libtool stuff?
