Summary0000344: [lamont@smallone.fc.hp.com: Bug#94755: ocaml: Build failure on PARISC machines]
DescriptionHello to all of you.

Here is what i got from on of the debian PARISC porters. I don't know if this is the right way to fix this, what do you think about it.

Anyway, it seems ocaml will work fine on PARISC, will try to test the packages on some PARISC machine, just to be sure.

Friendly,

Sven Luther

Package: ocaml
Version: 3.01-6
Severity: normal

The config.guess and config.sub files in the source need to be updated
to the current ones (at http://subversions.gnu.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/config [^]).

Once this is done, the package builds.

We should probably track the changes done in the FSF version of
config.guess and config.sub. Currently, we forked off an old version
and hacked it ourselves :-)

It's a bit of work, though, since some of the changes we did are not
exactly like those in the FSF version, so the "configure" script that
exploit the machine type would have to be revised.

Do you know of a mailing list or bug tracking system where we could
report problems and suggestions for improvement with the FSF "config"
package?

The native-code compiler is probably not activated. As usual, we
could try to get it to work, provided we have an account on one of
these PARISC-Linux machines.

mmm, i can ask the PARISC guys if this is possible.

Also, i might be interrested in resurecting the m68k native code part, i have
access to 2 m68k box (a 68040 and a 68030) and know m68k assembly from back
then. I may like to work on it, but sadly am laking time :(((
