I'm not sure if this is the proper list to address these problems to but
I'll give it a try...
Setup: I'm working on getting my source tree cross-compiled for the
dreamcast port, however, I'm reaching some difficulties along the way.
The toolchain I'm using is for coff binaries and is the one found in the
1. When doing a <build-script obj build>(build-script is the name of
the script which sets the right vars for and then triggers make) it
fails at two spots and I'm not sure why:
a. dependall ==> libexec/kadmind -- this fails informing me that
the file password_quality.o cannon resolve referances to
dlopen/dlsym/dlclose. I'm not too sure but I didn't think these
functions needed a lib(from what I got from the man page) in that case
how can I determine how to resolve this problem? Really, should they be
linked to something?
b. Just to keep things moving I changed the makefile for libexec
and removed the offending items, after which I ran into another
problem. dependall ==> gnu/usr.bin/egcs/common fails at the file expr.c
informing me of some odd assmebler stuff which leaves me in the dark.
It says Error signed .word overflow: switch may be too large?
This is where I'm at right now, Thanks...
