Moreno <Moreno.Mauri@italtel.it> asked me to post this to the crossgcc list.

Moreno, I can't see the cause of your problem. Maybe someone else here will.
But note that gcc-2.95 is rather outdated. The current release is gcc-2.95.2.
You can also try the current CVS source, whose maintainers are frantically
working on getting GCC 3.0 out before the end of year 2000. There is also a
branch for gcc-2.95.3, but it's dead unfortunately.

Hi Michael,
my name is Mauri Moreno and I write from Italy.
I've subscribed to crossgcc mailing-list, I receive mail from people
connected to the list but I'm not able to send my mail (majordome answer
me "Not available yet").
May you post my mail for me ?
I've got a problem building gcc-2.95 for target i386-elf-linux and I
don't know how to proceed.
Thanks a lot, Moreno. (e-mail: moreno.mauri@italtel.it)

Here is my mail:

Hi all,
I'm trying to build gcc-2.95 for target:    i386-elf-linux.

I'm working on host:  alphaev6-dec-osf4.0f.

I run configure in this way:

configure --target=i386-elf-linux  --prefix=<install dir>
--enable-languages="c"  --with-newlib -v

During compilation of libgcc2.a  I've the following output:

cpp: Error: Extraneous text follows Boolean option name in "-Qy"
make[1]: *** [libgcc2.a] Error 1

Has anyone got any idea how to solve this problem ?

Moreno Mauri
