crosstool-0.15: ppc-405, ppc-750 both pass nearly all gcc and glibc tests

crosstool is a set of scripts for building and testing cross-compilers
based on gcc/glibc/linux.

A new release is ready, and can be downloaded from

The big change with this release is that the toolchain it generates
actually passes the gcc and glibc regression tests (well, mostly)
on ppc405 and ppc750.  You can see the regression test summaries at
A quick writeup of the gcc test results only is at

It may be time for other folks to try this script out on their
architectures... I can't test things like arm or mips myself.


0.15 26 July 2003 "if it hurts, don't do it" now obeys GCC_EXTRA_CONFIG when building bootstrap gcc,
      otherwise glibc's shared libraries have bad code linked into them on some cpus. sets BUILD_CC when configuring glibc so it can build datafiles needed for test. now runs subset of glibc regression test.

      glibc-2.2.5-patches/sh-setjmp-fix.patch fixes glibc isomac conformance failure on sh.

      glibc-2.2.5-patches/glibc-2.2.5-crosstest.patch tells glibc to actually
      compile shared libraries needed to run its unit tests.

      Test results in 'summaries' directory.
      Actually passes most of the gcc and glibc regression tests for ppc405 and
      ppc750.  Doesn't fare quite so well yet on sh4.

Thanks to Ixia Communications for sponsoring this work.
