Cross compiling perl for sh4 linux

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I am trying to cross compile perl for sh4 linux. I have downloaded the
source for version 5.10.0, and I am trying to cross-compile in the
Cross directory on a linux host. I have followed the instructions in
the README, but I get failures when i run 'make patch'. At first I
foolishly ignored this, so when I tried 'make perl' I got the error
that the miniperl binary could not be executed. It seems 'make perl'
compiled miniperl using the sh4-linux compiler, and not the native
compiler. I'm assuming this is because some of my patches failed.

Does anyone have the patch files that work with this version of perl?
Alternatively, does anyone know the best way to cross-compile perl for
sh4 linux?

Kind Regards,
