An experimental (please note that word) egcs-current pkg has been added to
pkgsrc. It should work on all platforms supported by gcc 2.8. It currently
uses the egcs-19980531 snapshot. This pkg is not for the light-hearted. :)
It will install binaries of "cc/gcc", "c++/g++", and "f77/g77" directly into
/usr/pkg/bin. Do be mindful of where these are in your $PATH - you can mix
old gcc and new gcc compiled C, Objective-C, and FORTRAN code, but you
CANNOT mix compiled C++ code from the different versions.
This version of egcs does NOT install a shared version of libstdc++, and
that is deliberate, in order to avoid versioning clashes with the libstdc++
in /usr/lib (and the in-tree egcs in -current). However, a PIC library is
made available in /usr/pkg/lib, and I'll provide instructions on how to make
that into a shlib, if you need it, soon. The pkg was added now so that it
would reach a dozen or so users who have asked about it.
ARM32 NOTE: the PIC library is broken; I'm investigating.
