- Subject: Help compiling gcc 4.2.0
I have not been able to find g++ 4.2.0 binaries for Windows/XP on line,
so I am trying to compile g++ from source (groan!).
My steps so far:
1. I have installed Cygwin also checking that the following were included:
- bash (3.2.17-15)
- binutils (20060817-1)
- gcc / gcc-core / g++ (3.4.4-3)
- make (3.81-1)
For the testsuite:
- dejagnu (20021217-2)
- tar (1.16.1-1)
- expect (20030128-1)
- tcltk (20060202-1)
2. I have downloaded the following tars into my cygwin/home/src/gcc-4.2.0
3. I have set up separate build and target directories:
- Build: ~/src/gcc-obj
- Target: /usr/local/gcc-4.2.0
I am struggling with the infamous unix/dos end-of-line '\r\n' vs '\n'
incompatibilities. It seems that no matter what shell I use (bash, sh,
Cygwin, rxvt, dos) that the gnu make utility throws errors when it sees the
'\r' CR character.
Do I have to convert ALL the downloaded files into the unix format
(dos2unix)? (Yikes!) or is there a global setting that I can use so that
I don't have to do that.
I have William von Hagen's book "The Definitive Guide to GCC" and have
studied the Cygwin and GCC docs but I haven't found a good solution (yet).
Any help would be appreciated.
