1 README for GNU development tools
2
3This directory contains various GNU compilers, assemblers, linkers,
4debuggers, etc., plus their support routines, definitions, and documentation.
5
6If you are receiving this as part of a GDB release, see the file gdb/README.
7If with a binutils release, see binutils/README; if with a libg++ release,
8see libg++/README, etc. That'll give you info about this
9package -- supported targets, how to use it, how to report bugs, etc.
10
11It is now possible to automatically configure and build a variety of
12tools with one command. To build all of the tools contained herein,
13run the ``configure'' script here, e.g.:
14
15 ./configure
16 make
17
18To install them (by default in /usr/local/bin, /usr/local/lib, etc),
19then do:
20 make install
21
22(If the configure script can't determine your type of computer, give it
23the name as an argument, for instance ``./configure sun4''. You can
24use the script ``config.sub'' to test whether a name is recognized; if
25it is, config.sub translates it to a triplet specifying CPU, vendor,
26and OS.)
27
28If you have more than one compiler on your system, it is often best to
29explicitly set CC in the environment before running configure, and to
30also set CC when running make. For example (assuming sh/bash/ksh):
31
32 CC=gcc ./configure
33 make
34
35A similar example using csh:
36
37 setenv CC gcc
38 ./configure
39 make
