trouble linking iconvconfig while building glibc (was: Re: Crosstoolbuilding using Dan's Script)

Thanks, that worked..

Which version of awk were you using that was broken, and which good version of awk did you switch to? Hopefully cygwin ships with a good awk...

I am following the Dan's cross tool script step by step, I have:
1) Built Binutils-2.13.2 successfully
2) Installed GLIBC headers 3) Built the core GCC successfully.
4) Configured GLIBC successfully.
5) But while doing 'make' I get the errors as shown in the attached
'partial' make log file.(I also got same errors on MinGW).

Has anyone done arm-linux cross tool build on host Cygwin/MinGW before with
glibc-2.3.1 and gcc-3.2.2? I am asking this because inspite of following the
standard cross tool chain build steps, I am encountering these errors on
both Cygwin and MinGW.

Your log says:

Hmm.  You'd expect abort() and __strtol_internal()
to be defined by /home/build_glibc/,
which is very nicely included in that link line.

What does nm on your say?  On my Linux workstation's copy, I see
$ nm /lib/ | egrep '__strtol_internal|abort' | grep T
000296c0 T abort
0002bc80 T __strtol_internal

The linux kernel I have used to get the /linux, /asm and /asm-generic
headers is "linux-2.4.19.tar" with the patch "patch-2.4.19-rmk4" applied on
it for 'arm' target. To do "menuconfig" and "make dependencies" of this
Linux kernel, I have used arm-linux prebuilt tool chain
(arm-linux-toolchain-post-2.2.13.tar.gz) on host=Linux from .

Could this be the problem with incompatible Linux headers and Glibc?

I doubt it. The kernel headers aren't usually terribly version-specific for basic stuff like this.
