Question regarding gdb pkg

Hello ,

I am working on a new architecture - ppc64le (powerpc 64-bit Little Endian) and I was working on gdb pkg on our ppc64le environment.

The upstream tarball has the config.guess,config.sub, configure and libtool.m4 files

I find that gdb would require a patch to either config.guess or needs to pick up the latest automake (1.13.4 or above) version from upstream. The latest config.guess which has the ppc64le patch incorporated can be found at :;a=blob_plain;f=config.guess;hb=HEAD.

We have also worked with libtool maintainer to get alpha source release that has all the needed bits to support building on ppc64le. A stable release is expected by end of year. Until then, we request you to spin off a new version of your package using the alpha libtool release. You can pick up the libtool alpha source release from either of the below : (1.6MB) (920KB)

Can you please build and install the libtool alpha version and be able to spin new versions of gdb which would support ppc64le?
Please let me know once you spin of the new pkg

Your response is highly appreciated
