- Subject: building only libm from glibc source
I'm porting Debian to the Interix platform, see
On Interix the system libm is buggy, so I need a replacement. My idea is to
only build the libm part out of the glibc sources, but unfortunately this
doesn't seem that easy. There seem to be many dependencies to the libc part.
I'm only interested in the libm.a and libm.so files, I currently don't need to
build/install the glibc headers. Any help here in how to get that working would
Building the whole glibc is a long-term issue, as I think this won't get easy.
(The system libc misses several features, so having glibc would be a benefit.)
To overcome the system libm bugs I currently use libm from newlib, but
unfortunately this one has other bugs, too, so I now think it's necessary to
try glibc's libm.
Thanks in advance
