Re: RFC: Dropping the non-GCC bootstrap requirement (Was: BeginnerGCC projects question)
I hope to goodness not!
Has anybody considered dropping the requirement of
being able to bootstrap from any C89 compiler?
This requirement was reasonable in the infancy of
GCC, when it wasn't yet the most popular C compiler.
On some platforms it is still *NOT* the most popular
C compiler. I maintain two such platforms, and I would
be very upset to see the ability to bootstrap with the
native cc go away.
