(that's this system, when I'm running send-pr, the problem happened on...)

Sources cvs updated about 18 hours ago (between 03:00 and 07:30, UTC+1100).
Attempt to cross compile on an alpha, producing i386.
This used to (almost) work - there's a c++ compiler error
(produces bad assembly code (PR bin/14489) - or was - I was
attempting to get that far gain to possibly investigate the
cause, if the problem remains)
This is the first time I have attempted this since autoconf
was added to the tools used ...
The attempt ends ...
configure: error: *** Gdb does not support host alpha-unknown-netbsd1.5R
Configure in /usr/obj/tools/toolchain/build/gdb failed, exiting
I have the full (600Kb) make log (mostly from a cleandir that
preceded the build) if anyone needs more that.
Get on a NetBSD alpha ...
In /etc/mk.conf put
(and some other stuff that relates only to pkgsrc).
(cd /usr/src; /usr/tools/bin/nbmake cleandir; ./build.sh -u -m i386 -T /usr/tools -O /usr/obj -D /home/trees/i386 -R /home/snapshots/i386 ) 2>&1 | Mail -s Build kre &
The relevant part of that, is ..
./build.sh -u -m i386 -T /usr/tools -O /usr/obj \
-D /home/trees/i386 -R /home/snapshots/i386
I guess, don't attemmt to autoconf gdb when cross-compiling
(at lest when it isn't supported).
