- Subject: [RFC] Update to current automake/autoconf/libtool versions (take 2)
The following is the current state-of-the art of my autoconf-2.5x
conversion of the gcc/gdb/binutils repositories. It updates the
src: bfd binutils gas gdb gprof ld mmalloc opcodes rda sim utils
gcc: boehm-gc fastjar gcc libf2c libffi libjava libobjc libstdc++-v3
It does *not* update the following directories:
common: include texinfo config etc contrib
src: blt cgen cpu dejagnu expect intl itcl iwidgets libgloss libgui
newlib readline tcl tk winsup sid"
gcc: libbanshee libchill libio libmudflap libstdc++"
I used the following versions of the various tools:
libtool: 1.4e (top-of-tree, with the attached patch)
autoconf: 2.57 (with the attached patch)
The attached archive contains the following files:
setup.sh: Script to convert to autotools-2.5x and build an uberbaum
autoconf.txt: Fixes to autoconf-2.57 required by this patch.
common-diffs.txt Patches to directories shared by 'src' and gcc.
gcc-diffs.txt Patches to the gcc directories.
libtool-diffs.txt Patch to libtool-1.4e required by this patch.
src-diffs.txt Patches to the 'src' directories.
top-diffs.txt Patches to top-level files in both 'src' and gcc.
Description: Binary data
Description: GNU Zip compressed data
To run, first read through setup.sh, and make sure it won't do anything
you don't want it to do on your system. Then set the values of
src_gcc, src_src, and dst_root, and run setup.sh. The script will
rsync the checked-out gcc and src sources into a new directory, apply
the patches, and run autoreconf on all the appropriate directories.
I've built directory on i386-unknown-linux-gnu native, targetted to
powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu, and natively on i686-pc-cygwin (I got some
errors building winsup on cygwin, but they were the same errors I got
from the unmodified sources). I've *not* run extensive tests on the
resulting builds --- I'm willing to do that, but it seemed a bit early
at this stage.
I did not attempt to make the patches compatible with both
autoconf-2.13 and autoconf-2.5x --- I suspect that would be a
significant challenge, and converting to automake-1.7 and autoconf-2.5x
was difficult enough.
