I don't have a working compiler here yet and GCC_NO_EXECUTABLES. I can
only assemble, not link (we're about to build the libgcc for the
compiler here).

AC_TRY_COMMAND is used in the same file to check visibility support.
An alternative would be to run nm(1), but for that i need to know the
location of libc and libm so AC_TRY_COMMAND was easier.

The test is supposed to
- pass only on powerpc-*-*-uclibc*
- fail otherwise
so yes, that isn't quite right and should drop the case statement and
check something like __UCLIBC__ + __powerpc__ instead (or use #if
!defined\n#else\n#error glibm\n#endif but that would be more echo
invocations).

true.

>(and shouldn't it be $host_alias anyhow)?  Just write C code that does
>"#ifdef PPC"?

It can't be the host_alias, we can as well build either a
build=host=i386,target=ppc (cross-compiler) or a
build=i386,host=target=ppc ("native" compiler, cross-compiled).

Thanks. I'm attaching an updated patch, ChangeLog remains the same.
Ok for trunk?
