Sigh. I thought somebody had already checked in the fix to cnopen,
but I should have double-checked. It's in now.
elf2aout isn't required if you are using Jonathan's toolchain. You
can just cdelete the mv and elf2out lines from the makefile and you
should be able to build.
I've uploaded a complete distribution of elf binaries to sun-lamp, and
we're now waiting on somebody with root access to put them in ~ftp or
make a directory there in which I can put them. However, in order to
use them you will need a kernel built with the latest sources - the
distribution I've uploaded doesn't currently include one.
There's a bug in the current pmax kernel that prevents ktrace from
working. I haven't looked at it yet, but it shouldn't be too
difficult to fix, since ktrace was working before.
BTW, the latest distribution doesn't yet contain a working gdb, but I
have one that mostly works at home, and I'll be sending it out pretty
soon. I also have perl working and emacs almost working (I'm
currently rewriting unexec for elf - sigh).
