The GLIBC PowerPC CPU tunes addon is available for download from
This add-on is intended to provide alternative (cpu tuned)
implementations to existing glibc functions. At this stage, powerpc-cpu
is the first to use the --with-cpu mechanism, which is new to glibc and
needs some testing mileage. The intent is that powerpc-cpu will
eventually be merged back into the glibc-cvs tree (perhaps under ports),
but for now I will maintain the tar file.
The --with-cpu is not powerpc specific and can be applied to any
platform where gcc supports the --mcpu= option. Any one who is
interested can use powerpc-cpu as an example to create their own cpu
specific add-ons for their platform.
