sparc autocompile has begun
I finally got up the nerve to replace my ancient but working
libc6_2.0.90-971126-1_sparc.deb with libc6_2.0.93-980414-1_sparc.deb.
So my system is back in business, and I've set it to compiling
everything known to be compilable.
Problems so far:
* shadow: chkname.c:56: structure has no member named `ut_name'
* libstdc++28 should be in base.
* perl 5.004 is in slink only, but must be in hamm for a ton of
other stuff to work properly.
* mount: seems to need header definitions that exist only in stuff
like <linux/ftape.h>, but including the linux headers breaks other
Not problems so far:
* .umul definition
* GLIBC_2.0 link versions
* LD_PRELOAD segfaulting dpkg-shlibdeps
* perl 5.004
This first phase will sync the sparc hamm to the source; a second will
go back and fix packages which somehow still lack the (>= 2.0.93)
dependency. Or is (=> 2.0.92) still ok? Then all that will remain
are the boot disks and various problematic packages.
(I have this bet with someone on IRC that a reasonably complete sparc
dist can be uploaded by our deadline, putting RedHat to shame. ;-)
