getting libc to work better on an LC040



Hi,

After a bit of work I've gotten libc built with -msoft-float and a
userland FP emulator.  This basically stops dynamically linked
programs which do no FP work on thier own from segfaulting on a LC040
system.  In real life terms it means that cc and friends have a good
chance of working so one can bootstrap other crashing programs at this
point.  More details at:

binaries at:

source at:

http://www.mysunrise.ch/users/beoneel/download/libc-src-20020327.tar.gz

Note that this is based on the 1.5.2 NetBSD libc code.  If you
download it and would like to be kept informed as I make changes
please drop me a note.  I'm somewhat pleased since it makes my
PowerBook 540c work much more reliably, though not perfectly.

cheers
