Well, I just tried to compile current (as of 16 Aug) tools for
powerpc, gcc 3.3, as in a force like:


It seems that ppc-asm.h is not available in or about the
src/tools/gcc/obj.someppc/build/gcc include library, so that when
src/tools//gcc/obj.someppc/build/gcc/crtsavres.S is assembled, it
fails on the ppc-asm.h include:

-B/usr/local/src/1.5Wmpc823tools/powerpc--netbsd/lib/ -isystem
/usr/local/src/1.5Wmpc823tools/powerpc--netbsd/include -O2 -DIN_GCC
-DCROSS_COMPILE -W -Wall -Wwrite-strings -Wstrict-prototypes
-Wmissing-prototypes -isystem ./include
-I. -I. -I/usr/local/src/usr/src/tools/gcc/../../gnu/dist/gcc/gcc
-g0 -finhibit-size-directive -fno-inline-functions -fno-exceptions
-fno-zero-initialized-in-bss -fPIC -msdata=none -c crtsavres.S -o

crtsavres.S:42:29: ppc-asm.h: No such file or directory
*** Error code 1


What can I do to help the gcc 3.3 integration into current for
powerpc, or to test?  A guide, maybe? Or is it not yet Prime Time for

(for the record, this was the actual command I used to generate that:)

nohup sh -c 'date; export USE_TOOLS_TOOLCHAIN=no; export NOGCCERROR=1;
export DESTDIR=/usr/local/src/dest-for-mpc823; export MKSOFTFLOAT=yes;
export LOCALTIME=US/Eastern;
./ -m mpc823 -T /usr/local/src/1.5Wmpc823tools 
-R /usr/local/src/tar_files-1.6W-release-for-mpc823 release ; date' &

(after suitably hacking, of course.)

Best Regards,
