People who have legacy systems don't want to run gnome3 or kde5, or
anything c++11 or c++14 - they want straight, solid support from a
cross-platform packaging system that can provide them with what they

This is my situation.  Legacy system with older compiler.  Some
plstforms do not have adequate thread support for the newer compilers.
pkgsrc is a very stable,  efective infrastructure. build and
management system.  I would support this.  This would attract new people
to pkgsrc IMHO.

What packages should we be adding (back), then, in order to make this
useful for you?

As long as I have github,

I seem to have access

What older compiler? Any other compilers or tools that you need?

Older gcc? 2.95.3? any patches?
Older binutils? version? any patches?
Older gdb? version? any patches?

It appears on OpenServer 5 I'm stuck with gcc-4.2.4, to build it I need binutils 2.24, I have patches for both to get them to work. I have a gdb from gcc-3.95.3, I am working on a newer gdb.

Is there anything else that could still build perfectly well and we could

OpenServer 5 Definitive 2018 ships with ship GNU Portable THreads(PTH) - 1.4.1 and I'm going to look into using pth 2.0.7

I have a few things once I get past a new issue, I've found.

I see this line and then 2 differrent next lines. One works the other doesn't

/usr/bin/bash ../libtool --mode=link gcc -Wl,-R/usr/pkg-test/lib -O2 -melf -fvisibility=hidden -o -rpath /usr/pkg-test/lib -version-info 1:0:0 -no-undefined localcharset.lo relocatable.lo

Not working from the same command above

I don't want to turn this into a "let's just resurrect everything, it's
easier", which is why I'd like to have targeted versions.

I will get back to you once I finish a few things on my plate and I'm able to look at pkgsrc a bit more.
