README for GNU development tools
This directory contains various GNU compilers, assemblers, linkers,
debuggers, etc., plus their support routines, definitions, and documentation.
If you are receiving this as part of a GDB release, see the file gdb/README.
If with a binutils release, see binutils/README; if with a libg++ release,
see libg++/README, etc. That'll give you info about this
package -- supported targets, how to use it, how to report bugs, etc.
It is now possible to automatically configure and build a variety of
tools with one command. To build all of the tools contained herein,
run the ``configure'' script here, e.g.:
To install them (by default in /usr/local/bin, /usr/local/lib, etc),
(If the configure script can't determine your type of computer, give it
the name as an argument, for instance ``./configure sun4''. You can
use the script ``config.sub'' to test whether a name is recognized; if
it is, config.sub translates it to a triplet specifying CPU, vendor,
If you have more than one compiler on your system, it is often best to
explicitly set CC in the environment before running configure, and to
also set CC when running make. For example (assuming sh/bash/ksh):
A similar example using csh:
setenv CC gcc
