building gcc 3.4.3 on tru64 5.1

Dear gurus,

First time handling a tru64 machine, I've got an order to build gcc/g++. I have Compaq C Compiler and GNU make to do the job. Using the gcc installation guide, I ran "configure" from a different path. When running "gmake bootstrap", I got error:

checking whether canonicalize_file_name must be declared... yes
checking for stdlib.h... (cached) yes
checking for unistd.h... (cached) yes
checking for getpagesize... (cached) yes
checking for working mmap... yes
checking for working strncmp... yes

gmake[1]: *** No rule to make target `all'. Stop.
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/disk5/ccdb/source/gcc-compile/libiberty'
gmake: *** [all-libiberty] Error 2

Am I missing something?

Thanks very much.

what do you mean by different path? Have you done the installation according to the readme file? What is bootstrap?

Hi Michael,

I'm sorry, I should've typed "directory" instead of "path". And yes, I read the documentation for building the gcc compiler from Following the instructions,
I created a different directory to configure and build the compiler, and I ran the configure script. No errors returned.

Next step, I issued "gmake bootstrap" as describe in to build a native compiler. It stopped with the errors.

You need to build the newer versions of gcc with gcc. Build an older version first, like 2.8, and then use it to build the newer version.

gcc is not directly supported. Please use the delivered version within the development toolkit or on the open source cd-rom.

If you'll try to recompile an original gcc version please use the forum within the gcc organisation website. HP does not support gcc directly!
