One nit, though: Is there a way to install with PREFIX=/usr, but libc.so actually residing in /lib instead of symlinked to /usr/lib/libc.so? Also, does PIC (shared libraries) really have to forcibly enable -O3 ? This has historically meant "switch on all optimizations, even the broken ones". If I wanted -O3, I'd specify it myself. On a semi-related note--would -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks be adviseable? I know there was a security issue in the kernel some time back, for which this was the solution. Somehow I suspect that sysvinit won't compile, for the same reasons as previously (missing macros, strdupa, char **environ, ut_addr, [UW]TMP_FILE aliases for _[UW]TMP_PATH--all missing despite _GNU_SOURCE being defined). -- Isaac Dunham <idunham@...abit.com>
