Hi all, I'm pleased to announce that musl is now (as of current git) able to support C++ programs. I've just built gcc 4.6.2 with C++ support, including shared libgcc_s.so and libstdc++.so, and everything seems to work as expected. In order to get libstdc++ to build, the config/os/gnu-linux directory needs to be removed and replaced with a symlink to (or copy of) the contents of config/os/generic. This is to remove the glibc-locale-specific bit-peeking hacks that depend on glibc's implementation of ctype.h. You may also encounter the libstdc++ configure script complaining that it cannot run programs produced by the newly-build gcc compiler. This can be worked around by convincing the build process that you're building a cross-compiler or by adding the in-build-tree path to libgcc_s.so.1 to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH. I have not tried building any major C++ software, only trivial test programs, so I would welcome reports on whether real-world programs work as expected. Rich
