2017-06-08Fix debuild warnings/errorsAlexey Neyman1-52/+35
- Update .gitignore, do not place .gitignore into directories installed in bulk - Remove executable permissions and shebangs from the scripts that are supposed to be invoked only via ct-ng frontent; prepend them with $(bash). Despite what said, it already has some bashisms. - Remove --with autotools-dev and override dh_update_autotools_config to avoid having config.{sub,guess} clobbered with older versions - Install bash completion where Debian (now) expects it - Update man page to use .\" as the comment delimiter, instead of undefined macro (."); also, minor text edits. - Install without execute permission. - Remove shell wrappers from 170-localedef-fix-trampoline.patch, we do not use that for applying patches - Revoke execute permissions on - Get flags from dpkg-buildflags if available Signed-off-by: Alexey Neyman <>

2015-11-30PPL: Remove support for PPL and CLooG/PPLBryan Hundven3-8/+11
Now that versions of gcc that required PPL are no longer supported ( >= gcc-4.5.x AND <= gcc-4.7.x ) ...we no longer require PPL or CLooG/PPL. This commit: * Removes PPL * Removes CLooG/PPL * Updates the documentation * Updates build script for CLooG and GCC * Removes PPL and CLooG/PPL from scripts/ and scripts/ * Adds ISL to scripts/ and scripts/ I know that sounds like a lot for one commit, but it was all kind of inter-tangled.

2015-11-13file modes: Set files to be non-executableBryan Hundven1-0/+0
I was going to start doing some autoconf work, and noticed that was executable. Then I noticed was executable. o.O So, I ran ```find . -type f -executable``` and found a bunch of files that shouldn't be set executable. This commit makes them normal files again. Signed-off-by: Bryan Hundven <>

2015-01-28eglibc: Remove eglibc supportBryan Hundven5-12/+10
As posted on ==================== EGLIBC is no longer developed and such goals are now being addressed directly in GLIBC. ==================== I'm not interested in maintaining build support for unsupported software. Older branches of crosstool-ng continue to have eglibc support. If you find issues with older branches, I'm always open to pull requests. Removing eglibc also frees up glibc cleanup and build optimization. Signed-off-by: Bryan Hundven <>
2014-12-10Update .gitignore files.James Byrne1-0/+1

2011-12-31docs: credit Konrad EISELE for the initial multilib supportYann E. MORIN"1-0/+4
Konrad submitted an initial patch adding multlib support: The patch was full of good ideas, but had a few issues, so I (Yann E. MORIN) started it all from scatch, re-using part of the original patch. This got implemented in this series: hg log -r 446a17b5dd1e:e47d17391ae3 As I forgot to credit Konrad in these changelogs, update the docs so that the work by Konrad gets credited. Without his initial effort, we would probably not have had multlib support so soon. Thank you Konrad! Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <>

2011-11-16docs: --target versus --hostYann E. MORIN"1-5/+10
In the very beginnings, eons ago, autotools also got confused by this whole build vs. host vs. target, and got it wrong. Now they fixed it, but they want to keep backward compatibility, so the --target is still recongised, although ./configure will complain if you do so. It is better to use --host.
