This isn’t terribly useful for 99.9% of the people out there but I needed to do something creative on an F5. Â Luckily they run a somewhat sane version of Linux.
Unfortunately I am stuck on Windows 10 right now, so installing a matching Linux distro is out of the question. Â So on my OS X box, I thought I’d just build a cross compiler. Â Going back to my DJGPP cross compiler, I thought I’d stick with binutils 2.9.1 and gcc 2.95.3, since they worked so well before.
So on the plus side this cross compiler + library set , will crank out static ELF executables, which makes running things on alien platforms all the better.
On the realistic side, I doubt anyone will need it, but here it is.
Clang didn’t want to build anything this old, but luckily that backported GCC-4.2 has no issues.
