Don't you have to make libiberty (or whatever it is) and bfd to get ld
to compile?

On a related bootstrapping note, I'd like to get my pmaxes (already
running NetBSD) set up to do vax cross-compilation...  I know this has
been brought up before back in October, but either it was unanswered or
the replies never made it back to the list.  The best I could find via a
web search was how to get a cross-compilation environment working under
linux, which I could do, but it seems like a strange work-around
considering that my pmax machines already have NetBSD on them.  :)

For the cross-compiler, can I just go into
src/gnu/usr.bin/{,,egcs} and add some flags to make
(MACHINE_ARCH=vax?) to generate the cross compiler, or do I have to get
virgin GNU sources and do it on my own?

Once the cross-compiler is installed, again, is it just a matter of
adding the right flags to make, or do I have to "compile by hand?"

My uVAXen thank you.  :)
