Re: [gofrontend-dev] GO tools for gccgo cross

I got sidetracked with some bug fixes and decided the change for this was not real small.

Should this be submitted to gofrontend, or to the golang master source?

I have a patch to get gccgo to work on cross.

Is it too late to try and get this into gcc 5.0?
I think it's still possible.  Depends on how small and safe it is.

I've been experimenting with the go tools and how to make them work for

In golang I think there is just one 'go' tool and the cross build
are specified by the setting of GOARCH and GOOS.  So why couldn't the
be done with gccgo?

That means, on any given system, I think we just need to build the
gccgo and the go tools that are built with it.  No need to build
go tools for each cross target.  If a cross build is needed, then set
GOARCH and GOOS values appropriately and invoke the native go (for
tool.  Source changes are needed for the go tool source to determine the
correct cross compiler name based on the GOARCH and GOOS settings, and
use that cross compiler where needed for building or linking instead of
always using "gccgo".  I was able to make these changes and get this to
-- I built gccgo programs targeted for ppc64le on an x86_64.
I agree that setting GOARCH and GOOS should change the default name of
the gccgo compiler that the go tool uses.
