Description Josh 2009-03-10 20:48:32 UTC
On this computer, the main disk is labeled H:\, and GCC won't so much as print its version. It repeatedly causes crss to throw a No Disk error, which doesn't accept cancel as an answer. Can't really isolate problem; don't have access to any other computers without C:\ as main drive, and since it won't even give me a version number...

Thanks, and best of luck.

        * cppdefault.c: Define cpp_PREFIX, cpp_PREFIX_len, and
        (cpp_relocated): New function.
        * cppdefault.h: Declare cpp_PREFIX, cpp_PREFIX_len, gcc_exec_prefix
        and cpp_relocated.
        * (PREPROCESSOR_DEFINES): Add -DPREFIX option.
        * c-incpath.c (add_standard_paths): Call cpp_relocated. If relocated,
        replace configured prefix with gcc_exec_prefix.
