re: Status of various major things
BTW, binutils for netbsd-i386 *does* appear to work sanely, and is now in
the upstream. At least, it both compiled and run-time linked all the C++
code I could easily put my hands on to test (I used groff, which broke in
upgrading to GCC 2.95.4 local compile due to libstdc++ stuff; it's visibly
linked to the library, as well, so it SHOULD break in one way or another if
anything is seriously wrong... also used a local software project that's
very heavily C++ oriented)
i got the i386-netbsdelf patches into binutils a while back, yeah.
i think they appeared on some later 2.11 branch. binutils 2.12 has
(will have) support for pretty much all netbsd ELF platforms..
one thing to watch out for with libstdc++ vs netbsd vs gcc is that
our (netbsd) libstdc++ major version number is different to the one
that it's distributed with GCC as.. this isn't easy to fix so one
must be sure to be using the right version.
