- Subject: help wanted from Alpha maintainers: -mieee
Currently there's some very funky behavior going on. "-mieee" is added
to CFLAGS_FOR_TARGET and CXXFLAGS_FOR_TARGET (for Alpha targets) in the
top level Makefile. It's added by a top level Makefile fragment which
uses the += notation and therefore isn't totally portable. Furthermore,
it seems to be added all the time regardless of flags passed by the
I'm not sure what's going on here, but I don't like it.
Obviously this flag is only meaningful to gcc. Accordingly, it seems
like the logical behavior is one of the following, depending on what
the purpose of this is:
* gcc with target alpha *defaults* to the -mieee status, and it has to
be turned *off* with a flag
* each target library or target program which wants -mieee requests it
Commentary from some Alpha maintainers might help me unravel this;
ideally I'd like to be able to wipe out "config/mt-alphaieee" entirely.
