[ANNOUNCE] DJGPP port of gcc-6.1.0

This is announcement of an update of DJGPP port of GCC-6.1.0

GCC used to stand for the GNU C Compiler, but since the
compiler supports several other languages aside from C,
it now stands for the GNU Compiler Collection.

See
https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2016-04/msg00244.html
for original announcement of gcc-6.1.0 release


  • WARNING: This GCC port is for DJGPP v2.05 *
  • Build for DJGPP 2.03p2 is not and will not be available. *

Warning: DJGPP port of binutils-2.22 or newer is recommended.
Version 2.19 and 2.20 may work but are not tested
It is however recommended to use binutils-2.22
or newer

Use of DJGPP port of binutils-2.22 or newer is however required for

building gcc-6.1.0 for DJGPP.

Build for current stable version of DJGPP (djdev205) is
available

Binaries are built and tested mostly under Windows Vista Business (SP2)

Source RPMS needed for building Linux to DJGPP cross-compiler

Binary RPMs for both i686 and x86_64 are available. I built these binary RPMs
in CentOS 6.7 chroot under Fedora 23. Binaries are statically linked with GMP-6.1.0
MPFR-3.1.4 and MPC-1.0.3 to avoid unnecessary dependencies and increase
compatibility with other Linux distributions. For example they are expected
to work without problems in other reasonably recent Linux distributions
(like Fedora, RHEL-6 and newer, etc)

gcc610s2.zip is no more provided as patching GCC using DJGPP tools
has not been tested and even attempted by me for a long time.
DJGPP source file gcc610s.zip is a side product of building
gcc-6.1.0 Linux to DJGPP cross-compiler RPM packages. See source
RPM for patches applied to original FSF version of GCC-6.1.0.

Cross-compiler SRPM:

ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcross-gcc-6.1.0/djcross-gcc-6.1.0-2ap.src.rpm

Cross-compiler binary RPMs (built under CentOS 5.11 i386, are expected to work on other recent enough RPM based Linux distributions, I myself have tried Fedora 19 x86_64):

GNU C compiler:
ftp://ftp.delori3.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcross-gcc-6.1.0/i686/djcross-gcc-6.1.0-2ap.i686.rpm

GNU C++ compiler:
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcross-gcc-6.1.0/i686/djcross-gcc-c++-6.1.0-2ap.i686.rpm

GNU Ada compiler:
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcross-gcc-6.1.0/i686/djcross-gcc-gnat-6.1.0-2ap.i686.rpm

GNU Fortran compiler:
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcross-gcc-6.1.0/i686/djcross-gcc-gfortran-6.1.0-2ap.i686.rpm

GNU Objective C and Objective C++ compilers:
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcross-gcc-6.1.0/i686/djcross-gcc-objc-6.1.0-2ap.i686.rpm

Tools for GCC 6.1.0 (currently only fixincl, most users do not need this):
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcross-gcc-6.1.0/i686/djcross-gcc-tools-6.1.0-2ap.i686.rpm

Info files of GCC-6.1.0 (a separate RPM file as these files are expected to
conflict with system compiler info files, but You do not need to install them…):
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcross-gcc-6.1.0/i686/djcross-gcc-info-6.1.0-2ap.i686.rpm

Substitute i686 with x86_64 For x86_64 binary RPMs in the URLs above.

You need also cross binutils (choose required binary RPM file or build from SRPM)
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcross-binutils-2.24-1ap.src.rpm
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcross-binutils-2.24-1ap.i686.rpm
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcross-binutils-2.24-1ap.x86_64.rpm

You need also DJGPP development libraries, include files and some tools (eg. stubify)
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcrx-2.05-5.i686.rpm
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcrx-2.05-5.x86_64.rpm
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcrx-2.05-5.src.rpm
Note that one can use
ftp://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/rpms/djcrx-bootstrap-2.05-1.src.rpm

for bootstrapping

See
http://gcc.gnu.org/gcc-6
for more information about GCC-6.1.0 and about changes in comparison
with earlier versions

Also see file gnu/gcc-6.10/readme.DJGPP (from gcc610b.zip and
gcc610s.zip) for more information about this port.

There is also my web page about DJGPP port of GCC

I cannot promise however, that I’ll update it very often.
However new versions may appear there earlier (including ones not available
from ftp://ftp.delorie.com).

About neozeed

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!
