Subject: using musl-cross-make to build host gcc


I would like to compile gcc for my host using musl-cross-make. I copied statically linked tools (cp, mv, sed etc. + musl, zlib) to the new dir (system layout) and, of course musl-cross. Then chroot to dir and built necessary libraries (gmp, mpc, mpfr). I installed new libraries in /usr/local/{include,lib} and also copied them (.so and headers) in to cross/x86_64-linux-musl/{include,lib}. Then I built binutils, which I also installed in /usr/local.

I used all musl-cross-make patches for gcc. The compilation went without any problems. I installed gcc in /usr/local and removed the cross gcc.

After all I could compile binutils and libraries using the new compiler. Unfortunately, the compilation of gcc itself ends with a strange error.

cannot compute sizeof (long long)???

# cat test.c
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdint.h>

int main()

	printf("sizeof(char):		%d\n", sizeof(char));
	printf("sizeof(short):		%d\n", sizeof(short));
	printf("sizeof(int):		%d\n", sizeof(int));
	printf("sizeof(long long):	%d\n", sizeof(long long));
	printf("sizeof(int64_t):		%d\n", sizeof(int64_t));
	printf("sizeof(void *):		%d\n", sizeof(void *));

	return 0;
# ./a.out
sizeof(char):		1
sizeof(short):		2
sizeof(int):		4
sizeof(long long):	8
sizeof(int64_t):		8
sizeof(void *):		8

Any idea about what I'm doing wrong?
