RE: sysroot not supported in gcc-sh4-cross package

Hi Hector,

Thanks your help.

The binutils patch comes from http://wiki.debian.org/SH4. There is a apt cross toolchain server with latest version build ready. But unfortunately it does support to fix --sysroot issue. The source package from there could not using the dpkg auto build method, even I copy the 'debian/rules' for it. I guess the patch is to fix the build condition support for SH4.

By the way, what is the difference in 'BUILD_SYSROOT' and 'WITH_SYSROOT"?

Best Regards 
Jordan Pan

This is not Debian, so we might have some differencies in our systems.

You need latest binutils version, see

I am not sure you need this patch, what does it do?

Could you recheck if you need BUILD_SYSROOT or WITH_SYSROOT instead?

Yes, this issue is already fixed on later binutils, you need to
upgrade your host binutils too.

I tried sh4 a while back if I get some break, I'll try to reproduce a
cross build and include them into emdebian.org repository.

G'luck !
