Compiling DJGPP code. (Developers)

I'm thinking about trying to craft a new libgdb for the FPC Go32v2 target.

libgdb is roughly all *.a 's in the gdb/ directory (and deeper) after building GDB.

Therefore two questions:

1. Does sb happen to have such build dir for GDB 6.8?
2. Can I use DJGPP to build this under XP or do I need a "real" dos? How doable is this?

This partially also because

Andris Pavenis (andris.pavenis AT iki DOT fi) would be the guy to ask since he built 6.8 with DJGPP 2.04 beta.

I have no idea, but perhaps GDB68A.ZIP is what you want??

I'm pretty sure you need LFNs, which although possible in real DOS, is probably lots easier under XP.

You should also consider e-mailing Eli Z. (eliz AT gnu DOT org) since he is working on upcoming GDB 7.0, and he already has it compiling and working for him (and he uses XP, BTW).

If you have had asked "Can I use DJGPP to build this under 'real' DOS or do I need XP?", perhaps your question wouldn't have had so comical overtones.

The point is more that my dos/win9x system is slow (233MHz), and has networking problems (I have to reboot to get stuff on it via Linux)

If it would be doable on XP, I could run it on a heavier system. Which is nice for compiling larger bodies of code. But maybe I should indeed mail the current builders first.

DJGPP 2.04 is XP aware, so I think libgdb builds without problems in XP using DJGPP 2.04 packages.

In case anyone here hasn't noticed:

* Eli Z. is working on DJGPP support for the upcoming GDB 7.0
* he can successfully compile it with DJGPP 2.03p2 and GCC 3.4.4 on Win XP
* (quoting Eli): "I don't build from CVS, I download the latest snapshot from
sourceware.org [here???] and build that."
* both DJGPP versions of Bash (/current/'s 2.04 and /beta/'s 2.05b) have a bug in shell functions that causes ./configure (e.g. from AutoConf 2.64) to crash, needs either a workaround (put parentheses around the "return $ac_retval" parts) or Andris' hacked 2.05br3


Note that I don't expect most people here to care much besides marcov, and even that's assuming he doesn't already know. :-)
