The following is good enough to build a shared libgcc on
Linux (i386, alpha, ia64), Solaris 2.5, and Irix 6.3 (nearly).
* You chose libgcc.so.3 for the soname (at least on Linux). This
looks as if you try to encode the GCC version number in the soname,
which in general isn't a very wise thing to do. Is there any
particular reason for not starting at 1. Or better yet keep it at 0
(i.e. libgcc.so.0) during development, and bump it to 1 shortly
before the final release when things are supposed to be stable.
* I still think that having C++ specific symbols in the generic GCC
runtime library is a stupid idea. Zack proposed to put them in
libstdc++, but a seperate, basic C++ runtime library might be more
Oh, and I'll take a look at support for the Hurd when I can find the
time. Should be (almost) identical to Linux.
