Re: gcc 4.5 and TLS

I’m currently building gcc-4.4 and other up-to-date packages. Once
I get gcc-4.4 to work (got multiarch/multilib working, but libfortran
can't be built for -mfidoa due to incompatible inline assembly in a
system header file, so I'm now trying without), we can ask doko to
put the patches into 4.4.
Then we can tackle 4.5 and, after that, eglibc, I think.
I'm also working on getting a cowbuilder environment (created by
debootstrap) to work.
It just takes a few weeks more, I think (mostly due to m68k speed,
but also due to dayjob constraints). If someone were to work on
eglibc in the meantime, I could probably get instructions on how
to build gcc-4.5 from experimental.
I'm (still) building natively on ARAnyM, works very fine so far.
Look at the m68k-missing package in unreleased on debian-ports,
FWIW, I'm quite impressed with mksh interactively. I thought it was much
*much* more bare bones. But it turns out it beats the living hell out of
ksh93 in that respect. I'd even consider it for my daily use if I hadn't
wasted half my life on my zsh setup. :-) -- Frank Terbeck in #!/bin/mksh
