Hi Jeff,

You and I discussed this a week or two ago and here
is the patch.  We had stubs for the exec* routines and
a copy of the *dir routines from around newlib 1.8.
After this is merged and Ralf turns the crank for
new RTEMS gcc/newlib RPMs with this, we can
delete some files from RTEMS.  :)

* RTEMS now uses posix subdirectory.

Patch checked in. Sorry for the delay.
With this patch applied, I am not able to build any rtems-toolchain (!)

In file included
from /builddir/build/BUILD/rtems-4.10-bfin-rtems4.10-gcc-4.3.2/gcc-4.3.2/newlib/libc/include/stdio.h:34,

from ../../../../../gcc-4.3.2/newlib/libc/posix/rune.h:40,

from ../../../../../gcc-4.3.2/newlib/libc/posix/collate.c:31:
/builddir/build/BUILD/rtems-4.10-bfin-rtems4.10-gcc-4.3.2/build/./gcc/include/stddef.h:214: error: conflicting types for 'size_t'
../../../../../gcc-4.3.2/newlib/libc/posix/runetype.h:54: error:
previous declaration of 'size_t' was here

AFAIS, this code suffers from its BSD-heritage, so I worked around it by replacing the BSD-types in runetype.h with POSIX/susv3-types from stddef.h.

Corresponding patch enclosed below.


Patch checked in.
Ralf mentioned this build failure to me offline but I never could
get this failure to happen.  I am building with gcc SVN trunk but
I don't see how that would help.

Any ideas on what might be the difference?

Not that it matters much. This is the right solution.
