: warner, are you building your hpcmips stuff on a FreeBSD box?
No. After my 38 hour build on my hpcmips machine, however, that is a
viable option for me :-)
I've built the kernel in the past using cross tools until I could get
it booting. Then, I just built the NetBSD tools on FreeBSD and used a
spec file to define the right things and also to build the right
things. Hmmm, maybe I did it with the FreeBSD toolchain back when it
supported MIPS. I can't recall for sure now.
: if so, are you building your toolchain from source?
There's a hpcmips package for NetBSD/i386 floating around somewhere.
I don't have this.
My plan is to extract NetBSD/i386 from a convenient snapshot, and try
to run that in a chroot env. If I can do that, then I'll install the
hpcmips cross tools and use them to build everything.
My 900MHz machine is quite a bit faster than the the hpcmips machine
