Compile stuff is on hold for a little while as I wait for answers to my questions:

If you want to play with this stuff, I'm making my git repository available here:

As the name suggests, the goal is to get a standalone AROS SDK up and running. This will be a long-term project.

If you do try to use this, you'll need to edit $prefix/i386-pc-aros/sys-include/signal.h and declare sig_atomic_t. I have notes from Iain Templeton (our headers guy) and I'll be trying to do this properly sometime soon. For now just uncommenting the existing declaration is enough to make GCC compile.

I don't recommend shipping actual binaries from this yet though. I can't guarantee anything other than brokenness at this point.

For now I've installed 4.1.2 into /usr/local and will now start trying to compile JavascriptCore (a WebKit component). Focused time will be limited for the next week at least because my wife and new baby are coming home in a couple of hours :)

Update 10:00pm: I just got 4.2.2 to build and compile things correctly. The --enable-version-specific-runtime-libs switch to configure takes care of it. I don't know what changed in 4.2, and don't much care at this stage.
