Agreed, but it needs a little more work. I ran Klee's script (minus
the rm and cvs update - I want to keep a few local mods!) last night
and my binutils builds went uneventfully. There were a few make
warnings about commands being overridden, but that's a minor problem.
The big problem, as others have noted, is that "make install" doesn't
install properly on a native build. ie. with --build=i686-linux
--host=i686-linux --target=i686-linux I get tools installed as
i686-linux-$tool rather than plain $tool. It seems that
program_prefix is now set by configure whenever --target is
specified, which I suppose is not a bad idea. I'm happy to have the
tools installed as i686-linux-$tool, but I want them installed as
One other nit: Your changelog mentions binutils/configure where
you're in fact patching the toplevel configure. You probably need to
explain why this particular patch was necessary too.
