How to build#

  1. Check out source from branch.
  2. Change directory into a build directory that matches the desired configuration. If you want the Binutils to execute on a Linux host, and generate binaries for an SH4 target, change into the linux-x86-o-ntosh/ directory. If you desire a Windows hosted Binutils that generates binaries for a MIPS target, change into win32-x86-o-ntomips/.
  3. Remove any existing files with the exception of 'GNUmakefile'.
  4. Type 'make'. The build will take sometime to complete.
  5. Once Make has successfully completed, if you are on a system that has write permissions on $QNX_HOST and $QNX_TARGET, switch to superuser/administrator access.
  6. Type 'make install'. The build system will install the Binutils into the directories specified in root 'build-hooks' file.
