support for powerpc-eabi

Hi all,

What I am trying is to build a cross compiler for
under WinNT.
First time when I tried to build binutils I used the command

./configure --target=powerpc-*-eabi*
The reason, why I used powerpc-*-eabi* instead of powerpc-eabi was that
powerpc-*-eabi* was found in configure.tgt file under ld catalog and not


But I got an error say that "powerpc-*-eabi* directory cann't be
I edited the configure.tgt file and changed powerpc-*-eabi* to
Then I didn't get the error and build proceeded.
I continued my process, build binutils successfully, make and make
worked fine.

Then I tried to work with egcs, here also configuration worked fine.
But at the end of the make I got the following message:

//c/cygnus/CYGWIN~1/H-I586~1/i586-cygwin32/bin/ld: unrecognised
emulation mode:

Supported emulations: elf32ppc
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [../f771.exe] Error 1
make[1]: *** [f771.exe] Error 2
make: *** [all-gcc] Error 2

Now my question is does GNU support powerpc-eabi or not.
If yes then what should I do to solve the problem?
Or shoud I use powerpc-unknown-eabi?


Ask me if I have missed something.

best regards
