Yes... after all they are not complex instructions.

I sorted that problem (stdio.h missing) by copying the newlib headers
into /usr/local/powerpc-linux/include. So it gets past that now. But....

/usr/local/src/gcc-2.95.2/gcc/xgcc -B/usr/local/src/gcc-2.95.2/gcc/
-B/usr/local/powerpc-linux/bin/ -c -g -O2 -I. -I. -D_IO_MTSAFE_IO
iogetline.c -o pic/iogetline.o
/usr/local/src/gcc-2.95.2/gcc/xgcc -B/usr/local/src/gcc-2.95.2/gcc/
-B/usr/local/powerpc-linux/bin/ -c -g -O2 -I. -I. -D_IO_MTSAFE_IO
In file included from iolibio.h:1,
                 from libioP.h:47,
                 from iogetline.c:26:
libio.h:30: _G_config.h: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [iogetline.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory

So now I'm where Graham Stoney was at Date: Thu, 12 Aug 1999 14:34:44
I *think* it is looking for _G_config.h from my host includes, but it
simply isn't putting the path on the command line. Which I think it did
at one point, or at least on of those -I. was -I./../../include.
Arghh I'm must be going mad, or stupid. Surely its should not be as bad
as this?

Any help very much appreciated!
