The GNU Modula-2 front end to GCC

Solaris build on gcc-4.7 branch

These instructions have been reported to work with gm2 grafted onto gcc-4.7.3 and built on Solaris 10/Sparc (sun4u).

1. Install gmp-5.1.2:

Note that configure invokes the Bourne shell /bin/sh; this must be changed to the BASH shell /bin/bash. Bourne shell will not work.

Note that the source Will not compile with cc; requires gcc. (In this example gcc-4.1.2 was used).

$ ./configure SHELL=/bin/bash CFLAGS='-O2 -m64' \
  --bindir=/usr/local/bin/64 --libdir=/usr/local/lib/64 --disable-cxx

gmake check requires the following:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH_64=$PWD/.libs:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH_64

(Vide http://gmplib.org/list-archives/gmp-bugs/2008-July/001084.html)

Replace call to ranlib with echo in libtool.

gmake check passes all tests.

gmake install succeeded.

2. Install mpfr-3.1.2

$ ./configure SHELL=/bin/bash CFLAGS='-O2 -m64' \
  --bindir=/usr/local/bin/64 --libdir=/usr/local/lib/64 \
  --with-gmp-lib=/usr/local/lib/64 --with-gmp-include=/usr/local/include

Replaced call to ranlib with echo in libtool.

gmake succeeded.

gmake check passed all tests.

gmake install succeeded.

3. Install mpc-1.0.1

$ ./configure SHELL=/bin/bash CFLAGS='-O2 -m64' \
  --bindir=/usr/local/bin/64 --libdir=/usr/local/lib/64 \
  --with-gmp-lib=/usr/local/lib/64 --with-gmp-include=/usr/local/include

Replaced call to ranlib with echo in libtool.

gmake succeeded.

gmake check passed all tests.

gmake install succeeded.

4. Finally, configuration script for gcc-4.7.3:

$ ../../src/gcc-4.7.3+gm2-git-latest/gm2/gcc-versionno/configure \
  --prefix=$HOME/gcc-4.7.3 \
  --exec-prefix=$HOME/gcc-4.7.3 --without-gnu-ld \
  --with-ld=/usr/ccs/bin/ld --with-gnu-as --with-as=/usr/sfw/bin/gas \
  --build=sparc64-sun-solaris2.10 --host=sparc64-sun-solaris2.10 \
  --with-mpc-include=/usr/local/include --with-mpc-lib=/usr/local/lib/64 \
  --with-mpfr-include=/usr/local/include \
  --with-mpfr-lib=/usr/local/lib/64 \
  --with-gmp-include=/usr/local/include --with-gmp-lib=/usr/local/lib/64 \
  --enable-languages=c,c++,gm2 --disable-bootstrap --enable-checking \
  --enable-shared --disable-libitm

Note that to build, you must export the locations of the libraries previously built, despite explicit location given in the configure options. (This is a known bug.)

Note that as per http://blogs.everycity.co.uk/alasdair/2012/12/building-gcc-4-7-2-on-smartos-and-friends --disable-libitm was added to configuration script.

gmake succeeded;

gmake install succeeded.
