err configuring newlib for powerpc-linux

Wed Jun 4 15:50:00 GMT 2003

Hi All,

I am trying to setup an cross development envrn. for powerpc-linux on
Built binutils and GCC (cross) 3.2 and was then trying to
configure and compile newlib 1.11.0
(anything wrong with using newlib here?. Mine is an embedded powerpc
-MPC8260- target system)

-----------------screen shot----
[root@linuxswan newlib-powerpc]# ../newlib-1.11.0/configure
Configuring for a i686-pc-linux-gnu host.
*** This configuration is not supported in the following subdirectories:
     target-newlib target-libgloss
    (Any other directories should still work fine.)
Created "Makefile" in /root/anandapa/newlib-powerpc using "mt-frag"
./config.status is unchanged
[root@linuxswan newlib-powerpc]#
I think the configuration step is incomplete here in setting up an cross
dev. environment to build applications for powerpc.
(library will not get compiled and installed with this config. I guess. Why
is it not taking directories recursive?)

I even, went on doing a  'make all install' and tried compiling a sample

---------------------screen shot---
[root@linuxswan wd]# powerpc-linux-gcc -I /usr/include test.c
cannot open crt1.o: No such file or directory
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Could some one correct me with the proper configuration steps required?
