Dear Friends,

following is a log i created for myself while compiling a powerpc
cross compiler on an i586. i used:


also, i was wondering, i compiled newlib (as indicated above) but
i was wondering if i should also compile glib for this cross compiler?
if i did compile both wouldn't the second one overwrite the files
from the first one?

i know you're all rather busy, but could someone *please* comment
on the errors, especially the last (fourth) one.

here's the log:

>*** (1) *********************************************************************
