Spec file patch for binutils (430 bytes, patch)

Description Lennert Buytenhek 2007-06-09 06:40:49 EDT
On ARM systems, whether old-ABI or EABI is being used is encoded in
the fourth part of the target triple (-gnu for old-ABI, -gnueabi for

The binutils spec file redefines _gnu to %{nil}, which causes the
fourth part of the target triple to be left out entirely when passed
to configure, and causes binutils to build for old-ABI even on EABI

The attached patch makes redefining _gnu to %{nil} conditional on
not building for an ARM system, and fixes the build for ARM EABI.

Spec file patch for binutils
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2007-06-12 05:25:50 EDT
arm macro isn't defined in standard rawhide rpm nor redhat-rpm-config.
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2007-06-21 05:50:18 EDT
Ping.  Can you first get this macro defined into rpm or at least
redhat-rpm-config before spec files start using it?
Comment 4 Lennert Buytenhek 2007-06-21 08:41:55 EDT
Sorry for the delay in response.  This macro (along with other ARM changes) just
got merged into the upstream version of rpm:


However, this change has not trickled down into the rawhide version of rpm yet.
 If you want that to happen first, please let me know and I'll get back to you
on this when that has happened.
Comment 5 Lennert Buytenhek 2007-06-29 07:55:01 EDT
The rawhide rpm now defines %{arm}.
Comment 6 Lennert Buytenhek 2007-06-29 07:56:18 EDT
The rawhide rpm now defines %{arm}.
