2011-04-04binutils/binutils: add blind option to force use of ld.bfd during buildYann E. MORIN"1-0/+8
gold is not capable of building glibc/eglibc, so we have to force using the BFD linker, ld.bfd. Offer a blind option that affected components can select to force use of the BFD linker during the build. Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2011-04-03binutils/binutils: warn if only gold is selectedYann E. MORIN"1-0/+5
gold is not capable of building glibc/eglibc. See this thread: Reported-by: Bill Pringlemeir <> Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2011-04-03binutils/binutils: always set name of the default linkerYann E. MORIN"1-7/+5
Always export the name of the default linker, even if only one of them is selected. Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2011-04-04binutils/binutils: hide gold option if no support for current architectureYann E. MORIN"1-1/+11
The gold linker does currently support only a limited set of architectures: - x86 (32- and 64-bit) - ARM Hide the gold option for other architectures. Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2011-02-22cc/gcc: do not build plugins for static toolchainsYann E. MORIN"1-0/+1
Plugins are shared objects, and when building a toolchain statically, the gcc build system breaks havok (although there is no hard technical reasons it should not be possible)... And consequently, do not enable plugin supoprt in binutils. Reported-by: Thomas Spurden <> Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2010-12-29binutils/binutils: add wrapper to gold and ldYann E. MORIN"1-0/+24
When both gold and ld are installed, add a wrapper that calls to either gold or ld. In case the wrapper is installed, we also need to symlink ld.bfd and for the core_cc steps. Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2011-01-02binutils/binutils: add support for threaded goldYann E. MORIN"1-0/+8
When configured with support for threads, gold can link in parallel, possibly cooperating with a make jobserver. Add an option enabling threads. Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2011-01-02binutils/binutils: add support for pluginsYann E. MORIN"1-0/+13
Add an option to enable plugins support in binutils. Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2010-12-27binutils/binutils: add option to enable goldYann E. MORIN"1-0/+66
gold is a new, optimised, multi-threaded linker with support for plugins. Add support for gold starting with binutils 2.21. Although 2.20 also had gold, the configure flags have changed, and supporting 2.20 would be a mess in the code. Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2010-12-28binutils/binutils: add BINUTILS_2_21_or_later blind optionYann E. MORIN"1-0/+4
Add BINUTILS_2_21_or_later blind option. It will be used to add conditional support for building 'gold' on versions that have it. Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2010-12-14config/binutils: Add binutils 2.21Bryan Hundven1-0/+6
Currently depends on EXPERIMENTAL, as it is not well tested and I'm not sure if/which patches need to be ported forward from 2.20.1.
2010-08-23binutils/binutils: companion libraries are not usedYann E. MORIN"1-12/+0
GNU binutils does not use the companion libraries, although ./configure advertises switches for them. This is because the configure file is shared between different packages, and is a bit 'lax' about what it checks. See: Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2010-08-11binutils/sstrip: mark as obsoleteYann E. MORIN"1-6/+12
sstrip is causing more trouble and grief than tolerable. It is broken at least on PPC. It does not build on non-ELF systems (eg. mingw32, MacOS-X...). Plus, it is easy to install. Hide it behind OBSOLETE. Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>
2010-07-09binutils/binutils: add binutils-2.20.1Johannes Stezenbach1-0/+5
Signed-off-by: Johannes Stezenbach <>
2010-03-16binutils/sstrip: get rid of ELFkickersYann E. MORIN"1-36/+1
ELFkickers are looong dead and unmaintained, and the sstrip from buildroot is working fine *and* is maintained.
2010-03-16binutils/sstrip: depends on ELFYann E. MORIN"1-0/+2
No point building sstrip is the target is not ELF.
2010-03-16tools: move sstrip to the binary utilities menuYann E. MORIN"1-0/+50
sstrip is now alone in its 'tools' menu, and we will probably never gain any other 'tool'. Besides, sstrip is just strip, but a little bit more agressive, so it deserves going to the 'binary utilities' menu.
2010-03-05config: hide entries when in backend modeYann E. MORIN"1-0/+1
This implies hidding entries for: - binutils libraries - dmalloc - duma - native gdb - ltrace - strace - sstrip
2010-02-17complibs: hide companion libraries for target entryYann E. MORIN"1-3/+2
The companion libraries on the target are required only for internal use by binutils and gdb. The user should not have to know about this, so hide the option.
2010-02-18complibs: simplify config fileYann E. MORIN"1-1/+1
Although currently the wrapper is directly dependent on companion libraries, let's still decorelate those two.
2010-02-17complibs: split-up selection for individual libsYann E. MORIN"1-1/+2
2010-02-09binutils/binutils: fix using GMP and MPFRYann E. MORIN"1-0/+12
2009-10-28config: mark now old versions as being OBSOLETEYann E. MORIN"1-2/+4
These versions are kept for the upcoming release, but they will be removed from the next release if they are not used.
2009-10-27config/binutils: add latest version 2.20Yann E. MORIN"1-0/+5
Also add patchset vampirised from Gentoo.
2009-10-27binutils: remove duplicate config entries for binutils & elf2fltYann E. MORIN"2-6/+0
2009-10-27config/binutils: remove obsolete experimental versionsYann E. MORIN"1-72/+0
2009-10-28config: rip-out versions marked as OBSOLETEYann E. MORIN"1-12/+0
2009-09-13config: fix indentation for options marked EXPERIMENTAL or OBSOLETEYann E. MORIN"1-2/+2
Change the 2-space separation into a 1-space separation, for the sake of homogeneity.
2009-09-13scripts: add new version at top of choiceYann E. MORIN"2-8/+8
Add new versions at the top of the choice menu, not at the bottom.
2009-09-13config: re-order menu entries so that latest versions are at the topYann E. MORIN"1-59/+59
It makes better sense to have latest versions at the top of the choice entries.
2009-05-20Merge the uClinux/noMMU stuff back to /trunk:Yann E. MORIN"2-0/+208
- merge Linux and uClinux back to a single kernel - add ARCH_USE_MMU and acquainted config options that architectures can auto-select - make binutils and elf2flt two "Binary utilities" that go in a single common sub-{menu,directory} structure -------- diffstat follows -------- /trunk/scripts/build/kernel/ | 2 0 2 0 - /trunk/scripts/build/kernel/ | 206 204 2 0 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ /trunk/scripts/build/kernel/ | 198 0 198 0 ---------------------------- /trunk/scripts/build/ | 232 0 232 0 -------------------------------- /trunk/scripts/build/ | 150 0 150 0 --------------------- /trunk/scripts/ | 6 4 2 0 + /trunk/config/kernel/ | 249 249 0 0 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ /trunk/config/kernel/ | 252 0 252 0 ----------------------------------- /trunk/config/kernel/ | 21 0 21 0 --- /trunk/config/ | 23 22 1 0 +++ /trunk/config/ | 49 0 49 0 ------- /trunk/config/libc/ | 2 1 1 0 /trunk/config/libc/ | 2 1 1 0 /trunk/config/ | 1 0 1 0 - /trunk/config/arch/ | 1 1 0 0 + /trunk/config/arch/ | 2 1 1 0 /trunk/config/arch/ | 1 1 0 0 + /trunk/config/arch/ | 1 1 0 0 + /trunk/config/arch/ | 1 1 0 0 + /trunk/config/arch/ | 1 1 0 0 + /trunk/config/arch/ | 1 1 0 0 + /trunk/config/arch/ | 1 1 0 0 + 22 files changed, 489 insertions(+), 913 deletions(-)
