Successful build of gcc-3.3 on alpha-dec-osf4.0f



Successful bootstrap build of gcc-3.3. Some tweaks were necessary.

Output from config.guess:


Output from gcc -v:

Reading specs from ./../lib/gcc-lib/alpha-dec-osf4.0f/3.3/specs
Configured with: /temp/gcc-3.3/configure --prefix=/usr/local/gcc-3.3

--with-gc=simple --enable-nls --enable-interpreter
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.3

Bootstrap build was started using gcc (version 2.95.3) and GNU make
(version 3.79.1)

(When trying to do the bootstrap build using "native" alpha cc command I
ran into trouble with
iconv-library. The link step in first stage crashed.)

The following problems occured during compiler bootstrap:

The well known "virtual memory exhausted" case forced me to use the
configuration option

   after line 65 inserted a line containing the declaration of usleep
(copied from unistd.h):
   extern void usleep __((unsigned int));

   changed in line 251: #include <asm/pal.h> to #include <machine/pal.h>
   there is no asm directory present; there is an asm.h file instead
that inlcudes machine/pal.h

The following two files took a VERY long time to compile during


According to output of ps-command these candidates wasted approximately
2 hours cpu time 
mostly reported being in an uninterruptible sleeping state. Compilation
time could be speeded up a
little by renicing the compilation process, but the overall bootstrap
time lasted over more than 3 days.
Does anyone have an idea why this happens?
On the other hand, please be patient...
