Re: Porting gcj to i386-darwin

I have done some work on sysv.S and now libffi compiles fine on OSX/ Intel. Unfortunately, I had to put some #ifdef __APPLE__ this file because Apple ships an old cctools with as that doesn't understand some directives. My patch works on the 4.0 branch, I tried it on the 4.2 branch but libffi has changed in such a way that compiling it with the Apple as is not easily feasible (and I don't chew enough assembly code to change it).

You can ask specific questions about particular things that you want to do for sysv.S and we can try and answer them. You'll want to switch over to the top of the tree, if you want to contribute anything to gcc.


You can send us your 4.0 patches, and maybe someone might be willing to help up-port them.

Considering all of the above facts, how can I submit a patch, and how much likely it is to be accepted?

If you submit against 4.0 for 4.0, you have zero chance. If you submit against trunk, and it improves the port and it otherwise meets our standards, fairly likely. Do up your paper work now, if you haven't done that yet. Start small, try a small portion of the port that you think is easy to understand and not too dependent on other pieces and submit it.
