Thank you, Terry. Maybe I need to bring up the issue on -arch? Where is it possible to have design discussions without getting slapped down with the "submit a patch or shut up" attitude? I personally work by doing design first, or at least getting to the point where I understand the problem before tackling it in an incremental design/build cycle. Maybe someone can point out the design documentation for the whole complex mk hierarchy and/or for the design behind the importation of gcc and other GNU stuff into the source tree. Or maybe the design is the code... I appreciate your offer of assistance, Terry. I will take your last pointer into the make files and see what I can deduce on my own. /Joe To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
