Subject: success with ellcc & musl on MacOSX

I have succeeded in getting ellcc and musl to build on 10.9 with the 10.9 SDK and Xcode 5. I have submitted the changes I made to the configure system of the project to Richard Pennington, the maintainer of the ellcc project in hopes that he will incorporate those changes back into the project so that it will build on OSX without any modification. I was able to run a macosx-built hello-world c++/STL program on a powerpc-linux box.

I resolved the float.h problems by getting a fresh snapshot of the ellcc code. I’m guessing the snapshot I was using had issues. All that is necessary to get it to build are configuration changes and macports (to get required gnu tools like autoconf).

the custom triplet checks I referenced earlier appeared to be specific to ellcc. They were not in the mainline clang/llvm code. I don’t know if Richard is going to try to get his patches made official.
