Re: [PATCH - ping] Don't unlink /dev/null on darwin
Hopefully, libgcc will be split out to its own directory in the 4.1
cycle, and will grow its own configure.ac. The check can then go in
there and will not need to use -o /dev/null. If you're interested in
helping with this, talk to Paolo Bonzini (cc:ed).
Ouch! :-) I don't think I have enough familiarity with multilibs and
the like to split libgcc into its own toplevel directory... It is not
like libcpp and fixincludes, surely. Not to mention modifications to
the GCC driver that are probably needed for that.
Surely moving libgcc to the toplevel would be a worthwhile goal on its
own, and would enable in turn moving multilibbing to the toplevel which
is another favorite cleanup of mine. But while toplevel bootstrap could
be a first step in that direction, you'd have *target* bootstrapped
modules which are not yet supported.
My plans for configury work in 4.1 mostly involved the creation of a
common aclocal library in the toplevel's config directory, also to
remove the hack whereby fixincludes just uses gcc's aclocal.m4 file.
