Subject: [gentoo-dev] Cross-compiler - cross compilation to other *nix variants
Date: Mon, 17 Mar 2003 10:47:30
1 Looking in bugzilla I see that people are working on cross-compiling to
2 Linux on other processors and mingw for Windows. Is anyone looking at
3 cross-compiling to other unix variants? I'm particularly interested in
4 targeting AIX and SCO.
6 >From a brief look, I think the method would be:
7 1) Copy the libraries and headers from the target OS into appropriate
8 directories on the host. Possibly an ebuild that tells you how to create
9 suitable tarballs on the target, like the Sun-java ebuild tells you to
10 download the tarball?
12 2) Build cross versions of binutils & gcc using the cross ebuilds
13 currently under development.
15 If this sounds about right, I should be able to steal the odd hour of
16 company time here and there to work on it, now that my desktop in the
17 office runs Gentoo.
