Fun with old Linux systems: I've spent the last two days working on getting GCC 2.95.2 built on a Cobalt RaQ1. What a pain in the ass; it's running a special blend of linkers and libraries which requires the builder to explicitly link against libc. Bleh. I'm finding all kinds of problems coming out relating to this.
Fun with Apache: If you ever have the pleasure of installing Apache on Solaris (the version of GCC (2.95.2) and binutils (2.10) I'm using may have something to do with it) using shared modules, be sure to add the configure flag "--enable-rule=SHARED_CORE", or you'll be greeted with fun linking errors at runtime.
Fun with BSDI 4.1: Still don't have a working build of binutils 2.10 on this ass-backwards platform. Anyone have any success stories to share? (It's looking like a libtool-related problem, since ltmain.sh doesn't seem to like BSDI 4.1's "file" command.)
