Ok indeed that works. I should have known that. Will someone look at
the first reported problem (i.e. the problem when using gcc as linker) ?
Something else : I noticed that the assembler can fail with the following
gcc -c -IOSLib: -ICVSInclude: -mpoke-function-name -mthrowback -pedantic -Wall -Wno-long-long -DJTEXCEPT_WITH_MSGTRANS -o o.drawutils cpp.drawutils
Serious error: As can't write o.drawutils: No such file or directory at line 0
AMU: *** exit (1) ***
When the CSD is set to the directory holding the cpp/o directories, it
works. I think this is because of reset of Prefix$Dir in
source/unix/unix.c(_exit) during the first *sub*process exec'ed in gcc
but I'm not sure.
And 'as' is the second (of subsequent) subprocess, it doesn't see the same
I changed this in UnixLib in a recent CVS commit but I'm not able to build
gcc nor test it if this really solves the problem. So can either someone
reproduce the problem with the old code and verify if the latest fix in
UnixLib fixes this problem and/or make a new GCC 3.3.3 test release so
that I can further check it myself please ?
