-Compiling the GNU C Library for Linux/ia64

-Recommended Tools for Compilation
- In order for glibc-2.2 to build correctly on the ia64 you need at
-least the following versions of the GNU tools (the :
- * The Cygnus toolchain snapshot for the ia64 as of August 4
- including the provided set of patches. It is however recommend
- you use the October 24 toolchain snapshot or a more recent version.
- OR alternatively you can try the following (the Cygnus toolchain is
- the recommended solution):
- * GCC and binutils, GAS and GNU LD out of CVS from
- sources.redhat.com as of August 28, 2000 or later. The CVS tree
- may require special patches to work properly on the ia64.
-Configuring and compiling GNU Libc for Linux/ia64
- The library requires Linux kernel version 2.4.0-test4-000728 or
-later to funtion properly. Besides that it support for debug libraries
-is currently untested. Hence the following options
-are required for configuring the library:
- --disable-debug --enable-kernel=2.4.0
- It is also important that you make sure the library picks up the
-appropriate kernel header files, if you do not have recent enough
-kernel headers in /usr/src/linux/include, you should use the
---with-headers=<path> option to specify the location.
- As an example I personally use the following options to configure
