Debian-embedded people have done a fair amount of work to make uclibc
toolchains. There are various options but I'm not sure any of them is
as simple as 'download a nice new uclibc-ready cross toolchain'.
Slind have some old (gcc 3.4 vintage) but working nicely tools, and
info on how to build them:
Simon Richter developed a uclibc package which simply slotted in to
the standard emdebian cross-compiler via the specs file, but we
recently agreed that cool as that was, it make more sense to specify a
new architecture and have correspdonding toolchains. Ther is a load of
patches for doing that here: (set of 6 patches)
However that is that parts you need to build a toolchain, not an
actrual built one. There will no doubt be some of those along shortly
but I'm not sure we've got any online.
People - does someone have ready-built toolchains lying about?
