Re: Top-level bootstrap question
If you want exactly what make unstage1 did, "make stage1-start". There
is also "make restrap" as in the old scheme.
A side note: I've always been extremely confused by the "unstageN" and
"stageN" targets in the gcc directory. The double usage of "stage" as
noun and verb was complicating things, also because I'm not a native
speaker and the meaning of "to stage" as "to set aside" is not in my
Interesting. In all the years I've been using those targets, I never
even thought about the verb meaning of "stage". I wonder if the folks
who named those targets ever did.
