# error log posted at end
# fix - this works i think is only needed in binutils-2.21.1/bfd/

[ -d gcc-4.4.5/ ] &&
CPPFLAGS=" $CPPFLAGS -W-Wstrict-aliasing=0 "

the right fix is to Makefile.*, but the below is illegible and i have no 
idea where in .am to fix the "4.5" thing nor whether if i find it i can 
fix it and or add -Wstrict to it

# in Makefile.am and Makefile.in (both same)

# Disable -Werror, if it has been enabled, since coffswap.h won't
# compile with gcc 4.5 and above.
coff-tic4x.lo: coff-tic4x.c
