Compiling GCC With Binutils


Mornin',

I've been incorporating binutils-2.12 into my GCC builds by
unpacking binutils-2.12 in the GCC source directory and letting
the configure script detect the presence of binutils. That is:

$ gzip -cd gcc-mumble.tar.gz | tar -xf -
$ cd gcc-mumble
$ gzip -cd ../binutils-2.12.tar.gz -xf -
$ mv binutils-2.12 binutils
$ cd OBJDIR
$ SRCDIR/configure --mumble

Is this the preferred way to incorporate binutils into the build or is
there One True Way (tm) that I should use instead. Obviously, I could
reduce the build time by installing the new binutils onto the system.

Thanks,

Kurt
