DESCRIPTIONThis is a utility that prepares a directory with debianized sources which build cross toolchain packages. The sources produced by this tool are very small; the code itself comes from the "gcc-version-source" package and the necessary patches and extra build stuff comes from the "cross-gcc-dev" package.
ARGUMENTSNormal usage is
Where "gcc_version" is the base version of the toolchain we're building. At the time of this writing we know about versions 4.9, 5 and 6. This commandline argument is required.
Specifying the target architecturesThis tool generates a separate source package for each target architecture (the architecture targetted by the cross-compiler being built). By default these architectures are targetted:
If a different set of target architectures is required, set the "TARGET_LIST" environment variable. For instance, to build for "armel" and "armhf":
TARGET_LIST="armel armhf" cross-gcc-gensource 5
Specifying the host architecturesSimilarly, this tool generates a separate source tree for each host architecture (the architecture the cross-compiler being built runs on). By default these architectures are targetted:
If a different set of host architectures is required, set the "HOST_LIST" environment variable. For instance, to build just for "amd64":
HOST_LIST="amd64" cross-gcc-gensource 5
Specifying a verison suffixIf you need to upload a new source package when the version of gcc-source built-against hasn't changed, then you need to add a version suffix to avoid binary-version clashes. An optional SUFFIX env var allows this.
