How to generate the LIBGCC.A for mc68000

I had understood that my compiler has been generated for 68020 family.
So I re-compiled all the sources (including the binutils) with the following
option :
I also create a t-coff file by copying and renaming the t-m68kelf.
( I think it was not good, according to you e-mail the name should has been
t-m68kcoff ).
In any case the result is a compiler installed in a new directory created
for it
All the binaries are well installed and now the libgcc.a contains all the
arithmetics functions
I need for a mc68000 compilation ( including mulsi3 and friends ).

So it seems to be better isn't ?  :-)

I made a test for my compiler :

vi test.c

int main( int argc, char **argv)
    return 0;

and I tried to compile this file :

m68k-coff-gcc test.c

I have got an error in the linker :
it is deplayed in french but in english it should be somethink like that :

../m68k-coff/bin/ld: unable to find -lc
collect2: ld has returned 1 error code

Note that I had exactly the same error while compiling GCC and I found a
workaround by manualy edit the
Makefile in gcc directory :
SHLIB_LC = -lc

replaced by

How about this issue ?

I think it is the last one !
