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 it builds glibc-2.3.2
properly on ppc405, thanks to a patch from Daniel Jacobowitz.

0.16 21 July 2003 "Shaking out glibc-2.3.2 a bit"

      glibc-2.3.2-patches/glibc-2.3.2-without-fp.patch, straight from Daniel
      Jacobowitz, fixes the --without-fp option of glibc-2.3.2, needed for ppc405.

      glibc-2.3.2-patches/glibc-2.3.2-cross.patch, from cvs, avoids a glaring build failure.

      gcc-3.3-patches/sh-pic-set_fpscr.patch is a partial fix for problems
      building gcc-3.3/glibc-2.3.2 for sh4.  Work in progress.

      gcc3.3-glibc2.3.2.dat now refers to binutils- in hopes
      that fixes problems on sh4 (or at least makes it easier for Kaz to
      play with)

      My gcc-*-patches directories are a bit out of sync; if you run
      into a problem, it could be the patch you need hasn't been copied
      or symlinked into your version of gcc's patches directory yet.

      Note that wget on Red Hat 9 is rumored to not be able to fetch from  Workaround - use vanilla wget, or perhaps add the flag to use
      passive mode.
