Subject: [gentoo-dev] Patch for absolute minimal GCC for distcc environment
Date: Sun, 03 Apr 2005 01:56:09
1 Hi, I hope this is the correct place to send this.
3 I have setup distcc in my network. Most of the hosts are i686, but one of them
4 is x86_64. I wish to distribute tasks to the i686 machines from the x86_64
5 machine. This involves installing a cross compiler on the i686 machines for
6 x86_64 tasks. Crossdev is overkill for this - I don't actually _need_ glibc
7 and the like on the client machines for a simple distcc environment. It
8 really adds to the upgrade time when emerge sync; emerge worlding.
10 The attached patch makes gcc *only* generate the compilers - no libstdcc++, no
11 libgcc, nothing else - this is all you need for distcc. Likewise, compiling
12 gcc with this patch needs only binutils - no linux-headers, and no glibc.
14 I was considering patching the gcc ebuild to add a new option - e.g. "minimal"
15 to apply this patch - but I've no idea if you would be interested in this
16 feature. Please let me know if you are, and I'll develop it further if so.
