I've distworld'ed the commits so far - so they're seen via anoncvs, cvsweb, and in native.tar.gz now.

So, my concern is about this: > # Important for %ix86: > # This rpm has to be build on a CPU with sse2 support like Pentium 4 ! Why? Is this for build-time tests of optional SSE2-specific code that gets compiled in? Does the installed package nevertheless work on CPUs lacking SSE2? If these guesses are correct, then can we skip such tests when building on a CPU lacking SSE2, please? (BTW, this is what John the Ripper does - it includes SSE2 code in its i686 builds, but when building on a CPU lacking SSE2, that code remains untested, yet linked in. Then at runtime it similarly only uses the SSE2 code if the actual CPU has SSE2.) If the resulting package actually requires SSE2 (rather than merely supports it if present), then that's a bigger problem, which I think we would also want to address. > Summary: A GNU arbitrary precision librar.

How will they know to look for it? Is this possibly something that will start working for us for real once we update glibc (dynamic linker)? > %check > %ifnarch ppc > cd base > export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=`pwd`/.libs > %__make check > cd .. > %endif > %ifarch %ix86 > cd build-sse2 > export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=`pwd`/.libs > %__make check > cd .. > %endif So we need to somehow skip the second "%__make check" when the build host CPU lacks SSE2. Perhaps just add a grep over /proc/cpuinfo in here? (In JtR, this logic is included right in the compiled program.) > %preun devel > if [ $1 = 0 ]; then We use "-eq" in such places. > %description > > MPC is a C library for the arithmetic of complex numbers with Extra empty line. > %changelog > * Mon Sep 05 2011 Vasiliy Kulikov <segoon-at-owl.openwall.com> xxx-owl1 > - Updated to xxx. Please write a valid entry here before committing. gcc.spec will need lots of cleanups, but it's OK to make them after your initial commit. Thanks, Alexander
