Building binutils for PowerPC
Mon Oct 15 07:26:00 GMT 2001


I got the following error when trying to build GCC:

gcc -o c++filt.exe -DCROSS_COMPILE -DIN_GCC -DHAIFA    -g -O2
  cxxmain.o underscore.o obstack.o       -ladvapi32 ../libiberty/libiberty.a
/src/build/gcc/texinfo/makeinfo/makeinfo   -I/src/gcc-2.95.2/gcc -o
/src/gcc-2.95.2/gcc/cpp.texi: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/src/build/gcc/gcc'
make: *** [all-gcc] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/src/build/gcc'

...the strange thing is that the file cpp.texi actually DOES exist at that

I found the below help but none of them helped

Any ideas of what maight be wrong?

Regards, Daniel


UWOT? ($srcdir)/gcc/cpp.texi: No such file or directory
make: *** [] Error 2

UPDATED: This one shouldn't happen any more if you follow the new build

texinfo files need a different build procedure under cygwin. The simplest
solution once this error has occurred is to just create dummies:


and make do without them. The *proper* solution is to rename or delete the
texinfo subdirectory in the gcc source code before beginning to build, and
add the flag --with-included-gettext to your configure command.
