Error while compiling binutils 2.15.92 package


Hi All,

I am trying to compile binutils 2.15.92 package on RHEL 5.4, which is required with gcc 3.4.6 version. I have already installed gcc 3.4.6 on /opt/gcc.

I have given the --prefix as /opt/binutils during compilation. I have all flex, bison and m4 packages installed.

I am getting following error during compilation..

Code:
root/binutils/binutils-2.15.92.0.2/binutils/bucomm.c:425: warning: the use of `mktemp' is dangerous, better use `mkstemp'
ar.o: In function `mri_emul':
ar.c:(.text+0x9f2): undefined reference to `yyparse'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [ar] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/root/binutils/binutils-2.15.92.0.2/binutils'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/binutils/binutils-2.15.92.0.2/binutils'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/binutils/binutils-2.15.92.0.2/binutils'

Thanks

Does this help? (run "make clean")

'gcc-3.4.6' works OK with the default binutils-2.17.50.

The spec file for compat-gcc-34 says "BuildRequires: binutils >= 2.16.91.0.5-1"
( binutils >= 2.16.91.0.5 or later.)
http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/lin....6-4.1.src.rpm


No need to build a 'gcc-3.4.6' :
Package names EL 5, example from CentOS : compat-gcc-34-3.4.6-4.i386.rpm
compat-gcc-34-c++-3.4.6-4.i386.rpm compat-gcc-34-g77-3.4.6-4.i386.rpm


And by the way, I don't think, you will find it easy to work with
two different linkers ( ld ).

Thanks knudfl.

It worked when I compile with gcc 3.4.6.

I could see a config spec file for binutils from a tar.gz archive. How to check the config spec present in gcc, what is the file name ?

I am not able to understand the output of the spec file being dumped by gcc command

Code:

Please do not install any binutils. ( Unless you want trouble.)
The system binutils must be used.
http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/lin...14.el5.src.rpm

# yum install binutils : Will provide binutils-2.17.50.0.6.

Thanks for the advice.

The command used to obtain the config specs is.

Code:
gcc -dumpspecs
The output along with the command is specified in the previous post, which I am not able to understand, and has many unrecognizable characters.

Thanks

gcc34 -dumpspecs :
I'd guess, some explanation can be found in the gcc documentation.

Google .. gcc -dumpspecs .. : Will point to :
http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/ and http://gcc.gnu.org/

3.4.6 : http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-3.4.6/gcc/
