Ahh, too long time since I mucked around with sysroot. I installed binutils and now I got a the correct and libiberty.a under /usr/powerpc-softfloat-linux-gnu/usr/lib/binutils/powerpc-softfloat-linux-gnu/2.16.1/ There is no symlink under /usr/powerpc-softfloat-linux-gnu/lib/ though which forces me to pass -L and -I options too gcc in order to build oprofile. Would be nice if the symlinks were created to make the x-compile env. mimic the normal host env. Same for libbfd and headers for those 2 libs. Jocke
