- Subject: objcopy with EFI x86_64 support
I'm completely new to building binutils from source.
I'm on a GNU/Linux system (xubuntu 18.04 LTS 64bit).
My goal is to build a version of objcopy that can support EFI x86_64.
I've read that binutils 2.24 have that support. But I can build none of
the 2 snapshots for 2.24 (make fails with errors but I guess for old
versions the exact error messages are not interesting anymore).
And after building building 2.30.0 (with enabling all targets) I found
out that it has NOT efi x86-64 support.
Any suggestion how I can get a objcopy with that support? Should I try
git to get an alternative 2.24 version? I'm not a git expert... Or
should I envoke "./configure" with that target?
