I have already built the "latest cross gcc (i.e 4.1.1) that is available through

crosstool-ng".

Unfortunately, 4.1.1 offers very little Ia64 goodies.

In such a case , 4.9.0 is definitely ideal.

However, the last time I ventured out of croostool-ng land

into beyond 4.1.1 gccs, i ran into lots of trouble.

Therefore, I was hoping for help from tried hands all over the ia64 community.

The information I need are the following:

gcc-version for all latest (ia64) optimizations
gcc-core-version
glibc-version
binutils-version
linux-libc-headers-version
glibc-linuxthreads-version

Sincerely,
Seima Rao.
