Thank you Marcus for this patch but is the linker script really necessary
these days? We stopped building with it in 21.4.16 because it didn't work
with GCC 3. In fact YellowDog, Debian and Gentoo all disable the linker
script in their distributions.
I do not know.
As for your other patches, could you please describe the
which they're required? I don't think that I've come across the problems
these patches are fixing. For example, I'm typing this message using the
latest CVS version of 21.4 on Gentoo 64-bit userland PPC64 built with the
'--with-menubars=lucid' '--with-gif=no' '--without-tiff'
'--with-jpeg' '--without-xface' '--with-gpm'
'--without-ldap' '--with-sound=native' '--with-system-malloc'
'--with-pop' '--with-ncurses' '--with-msw=no'
This configuration passes 'make check' and works for reading and sending mail
I tried a build without the linker script patch and it also works for me.
Sorry for bothering you :)
