Which I cannot do, as this is sparc64. Apparently the mainline toolchain
is not considered useful there (at least gnu/usr.bin/egcs/Makefile won't
build any compiler components on sparc64).
I presume you haven't read the faq http://www.netbsd.org/Ports/sparc64/faq.html#compile-cc:
How do I build the new compiler? (top)
As of 20000927, the sparc64 port uses it's own gcc 2.95. Here's how to build and install it (in
* cd src/gnu/dist/toolchain
* mkdir builddir
* contrib/egcs_update --touch
* cd builddir
* make (you can set LANGUAGES=c if you don't want the others)
* make install
* rm -fr /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/*/2.95.2/include
If your build breaks with "Fatal error: Can't extend frag 90. chars", you can try removing "-g" from
CFLAGS in src/gnu/dist/toolchain/builddir/binutils/Makefile.
