[Fwd: sh4-cross-compiling-gcc-3.0.2 build fails during assembly]
Tue Jan 15 15:41:00 GMT 2002
we're having a problem building gcc-3.0.2 for sh4 on an x86 system.
It looks like the build process for gcc is using 'as' without
a prefix, so it's getting the system 'as', which can't understand
the output of sh4 gcc (naturally).
We used strace on the problem line, and verified that xgcc was
searching the path for 'as'.
What are we doing wrong here?
