re: Autoconf build targets
1) Modify the kernel build so uname -v includes "Debian" - this is a
pretty trivial change. It does present problems if people build kernels on
their own - one option would be to make sure that the kernel build system
ensures that this is set.
i think this will only cause things to be more broken when people
aren't running the right kernel.. it also just seems Wrong to me.
2) config.guess currently produces i386-unknown-netbsdelf1.5. Under Linux,
this is i386-pc-linux-gnu. Adding i386-unknown-netbsdelf1.5-gnu (or
possibly even just i386-unknown-netbsd-gnu), determined by the different
uname output, would allow for Debian-specific alterations to be made which
could be included upstream without breaking anything else.
i like i386-unknown-netbsd-gnu or i386-unknown-netbsd-debian. i'd
ask the config.guess maintainers what _they_ feel about this..
(Oh, and kudos to the NetBSD guys for producing a kernel which seems happy
to build with gcc 3.04 :) )
we try :)
