Re: [patch,avr]: Part2: Fix various problems with specs and specs file generation.

Hi Johann,

Did you try running g++ tests?
It seems xgcc is invoked to get multilibs (from gcc/testsuite/lib/g++.exp) which failed to find specs file.

This is because libgloss.exp:get_multilibs (used from g++_init) runs xgcc ($compiler) without -B, i.e. without any prefix. Without prefix there is no way to determine where the specs files are located.

Patching driver_self_specs to read a specs file by means of -specs= is, well, not very common. I don't know any other target which does that.

As a work-around you can run the tests against the installed compiler.

Denis, what do you think? I could add yet another fixme to avr backend like the following; that way there's no need to change dejagnu:
