#2518 new defect

RTEMS 4.9 cannot be built with modern texinfo (includes a fix)

Reported by: Goetz Pfeiffer Owned by: Chris Johns
Priority: normal Milestone: 4.9.5
Component: unspecified Version: 4.9
Severity: normal Keywords: cannot build debian-7
Cc: Blocked By:


Using the rtems source builder to build RTEMS 4.9 on a debian-7 linux system fails since some of the texinfo files in newlib-gcc and gcc are invalid for texinfo. This applies at least for texinfo version 6.0. This Report also contains a git patch for the git://git.rtems.org/rtems-tools.git repository to fix the problem.

Could somebody with write permissions please add these ("git apply [patchfile]") ?
