I've (at last1) committed changes to build the system-call libc stubs,
and now the libposix syscall stubs too. Anyone who wishes to should
now be able to bootstrap an entire pmax source tree, including kernel,
userland, and X11R6.3. The sole possible exception is the bootblock
code, which (AFAIK) still expects the old NetBSD-1.0 a.out mips
For now, NetBSD doesn't include binutils source. If you want to
compile _everything_ from source, you'll need to get binutils 2.8 (or
2.8.1, if it's out) and configure, build, and install binutils
yourself. (I've tried, and it seems to pass a `make stage3'-style
test, as does gcc 126.96.36.199).
If someone has the time and patience to try this at home, that would
Meanwhile, I've built a 1.2E (current as of yesterday) kernel with
Arne's ldscript and I've kicked off another snapshot build. Due to
other commitments, the snapshot might not be avaiable for a few days.
