Add note on autotools.

  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 905 bytes
1* Improve autotools support:
2- Problem: The autotools packages conflict with OS provided packages
3  for --prefix=/usr.
5* Improve info files treatment:
6- Problem: Infos are not target canonicalized. Therefore, installing them to
7  /usr or /usr/local is likely to conflict with vendor provided infos rsp.
8  locally installed packages. Additionally, installing to /usr/local is
9  completely out of our control.
10- Current approach: Install infos/provide base packages only for
11  $prefix ==/opt/rtems* or if user is forcing them with --enable-infos
12- Consider to canonicalize the infos (How?). Probably better be done by
13  upstream.
15* Ada:
16- Consider to remove it (Lack of multilibs renders it unusable for rtems
17  toolchains).
18- Consider to add support for non-multilib'ed toolchains.
20* gcc/build.add: Use --languages=fortran instead of f95 for gcc >= 4.1
21  (--languages=f95 is deprecated in gcc >= 4.1)
