   I attempted to build newlib-1.8.0 as follows:

   ./configure --target=powerpc-eabi
   make all

   The build halted as follows:
   powerpc-eabi-gcc -O2 -g  -I. -I./.. `if [ -d ./../../newlib ]; then echo
   -I./../../newlib/targ-include -I./../../newlib/libc/include; fi`
   -mrelocatable-lib -mno-eabi -I. -I./.. -g -O2 -c sim-crt0.S
   make[2]: *** No rule to make target `unlink.o', needed by `libsim.a'. 

Sorry for the slow reply.

I believe adding this line to libgloss/rs6000 will fix things.

  sbrk.o: $(srcdir)/../sbrk.c
  stat.o: $(srcdir)/../stat.c
+ unlink.o: $(srcdir)/../unlink.c
  clean mostlyclean:
