Re: [patch] ppc64 native target for gcc

you do need the rest since darwin is unlikely to return the 64-bit versions of the processors for config.guess any time in the near future.

Actually, I was thinking about this. If you point CC=gcc64, then, config.guess should return powerpc64. If you point it at a 32-bit default, config.guess can return powerpc. I think this would be safe, as very, very few people will have a 64 bit default compiler, and those that do, want the next one to be as well.


You can notice this by compiling void *p = 0; and seeing it it is 32 or 64 bits.

I'd Ok that type of change, if anyone wants to do that.
