Hi folks!

I'm trying to build a cross-compiler under Linux and MacOSX using this
script: http://sourceware.org/ml/cygwin/2010-08/txt00010.txt
I get the same error on Linux and MacOSX after the make of line 340:

Anyone able to run the script to completion or a different (and working) way
to build a cross-compiler for cygwin on Linux and OSX?

Hello? Noone building cross-compilers for cygwin?
I tried several times building a cross-compiler for sparc Solaris. I tried using the headers for Solaris 8, 9, and 10, but I never succeeded. I was able to build binutils, though, but not gcc. I have never tried Linux/OSX.

IIUC the OP is trying to build a linux-to-cygwin cross-compiler. It
sounds like you're trying to build a cygwin-to-solaris cross-compiler,
and there is such a toolchain available in Ports:

http://cygwin-ports.git.sourceforge.net/git/gitweb.cgi?p=cygwin-ports/solaris10-sparc-binutils
http://cygwin-ports.git.sourceforge.net/git/gitweb.cgi?p=cygwin-ports/solaris10-sparc-gcc
http://cygwin-ports.git.sourceforge.net/git/gitweb.cgi?p=cygwin-ports/solaris10-x86-binutils
http://cygwin-ports.git.sourceforge.net/git/gitweb.cgi?p=cygwin-ports/solaris10-x86-gcc

The GCC .cygport files explain how to get the necessary libc/libm
headers and libraries off of a Solaris system and where to place them on
the Cygwin system.

Cygwin normally builds with -Werror but there are a few warnings
generated by GCC 4.5 which haven't been fixed yet in the code. Remove
-Werror from $top_builddir/i686-pc-cygwin/winsup/cygwin/Makefile and the
rest of the build should precede without any further difficulties.

Not without any further difficulties, but at least with a different error:

Again, the same error on Linux and OSX.

Thank you for helping, btw! ;)

You need to have mingw.org runtime and w32api files installed, such as
Fedora Linux's mingw32-runtime and mingw32-w32api packages. Otherwise,
unpack the binary packages found here into your system root:

http://cygutils.fruitbat.org/ITP/mingw-gcc/release/mingw/mingw-runtime/
http://cygutils.fruitbat.org/ITP/mingw-gcc/release/mingw/mingw-w32api/

HTH,

Depending on your distro, this might make things a bit easier:

As for OSX, you'll need the patches from git, but the directions from
the .spec files will likely need some adjustments.
