Well, in my case, it's only the bfin which exposes this behavior.
I guessed as much - binutils and gcc are more restrictive, ... andI don't remember that it was, but I might be wrong.
unless I am in error, gdb once also was :(
IIRC, in case of bfin-* targets, gdb < 7's configure-scripts refused to
buildbfd, opcodes or some other binutils subdirectory, gdb inherits from
binutils. AFAIS, gdb >= 7.0 has inherited bfd etc. from a version of
binutils which has been added the bfin* targets.
I.e. now, binutils' more restrictive checks don't trigger anymore.
Well, it's certainly not a major issue, nevertheless it's a nuissance
responsible for nasty surprises and thus should be addressed.
Note: It did not fail at build-time - Building went absolutelyRight - I meant run-time, not build-time.
smoothless -- gdb crashed at run-time!
I don't feel like this is a real problem, but others might disagree.
