Re: Building PCC for "tools" is broken (missing symbol __USE)- PCC bug or NetBSD source tree error?

Sorry for the delay in getting back. Iain sent me an email suggesting a checkout like you suggested, or using in $NETBSD_ROOT/external/bsd/pcc/. Is up to date? Should I use that script instead, or are there subtle issues to using that script right now as opposed to applying the diff directly (I've read that PCC's files are kept in multiple parts of the source tree)? It seems as if "" implements the equivalent of git subtree (track repository from within repositoty).

Additionally, the bottom of is confusing me:
echo ""
echo "after testing, use the following command to import from the dist directory,"
echo ""
echo "    cvs import src/external/bsd/pcc/dist ragge pcc-${datestamp}"
echo ""
echo "providing a ChangeLog in the commit message."

Is that supposed to be your job, Anders, since my username is not ragge, and I don't have write access :P.

The commit messages are saved at, see

To get a diff you can use cvs -d rdiff -u -r1.376 -r1.377

Should be directly applyable.

Do you have a patch that I can apply to my private NetBSD source tree of pcc for the time being? My pcc is compiled into the NetBSD tools directory, at which point it is used to compile the rest of the NetBSD source tree.

Yes, I think you can set UNSUPPORTED_COMPILER.pcc in the Makefile and it
will proceed using a different one

For the time being, I'll make a note of all the tools that pcc cannot
currently build, and set Makefiles accordingly. I'm not sure if these
tools under gpl track upstream or not, so at least for tonight I'm not
sure if feel comfortable changing the actual source code of binutils
to make pcc compile it successfully. Although perhaps submitting a
patch to binutils that undefines __restrict in arrays if pcc is being
used is a possible solution for the time being.

pcc accepted __restrict but not restrict in array declaration.  I just
added a yacc rule to pcc to accept both (to master tree).
