I have ia64 libraries and heade files under

I configure the ia64 tool chain as

# /work/ia64/import/cygnus/20000501/src/configure --with-gcc-version-trigger=/work/ia64/import/cygnus/20000501/src/gcc/version.c --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu --target=ia64-cygnus-linux --enable-cpp --enable-shared --prefix=/usr/ia64-cygnus-linux --enable-languages=c,c++--with-local-prefix=/usr/ia64-cygnus-linux 

/usr is owned by root and I build it as myself. As for as I can tell,
--with-headers/--with-libs will try to copy things over to
/usr/ia64-cygnus-linux/ia64-cygnus-linux/ during configure. It
doesn't make much senses to me:

1. I am not root. I have no permission to write to /usr.
2. Those headers and libs are already under


I don't know why I have to do it anyway.

Assuming --with-headers/--with-libs works for me, which doesn't, I
get exactly the same as before. I must have done something wrong.
Could you please tell me the correct way to build a ia64 cross
tool chain from Linux/ia32 using the existing GNU C library Linux/ia64
