I've successfully done a configure and make with
--target=ia64-unknown-linux on the following hosts:
Of course, this only takes care of the build portion. If you want to
(somehow) test the resulting gdb, you need to have access to an IA-64
machine running Linux or a simulator (running Linux).
See http://www.software.hp.com/products/LIA64/overview4a.htm for info
on an IA-64 simulator. (I did much of the initial development with an
i686-pc-linux-gnu cross ia64-unknown-linux GDB using HP's ski
simulator. It is able to boot Linux and runs amazingly well.)
It may also be possible to use HP's NUE environment to do the testing
I have not tried this.
