Creating a ppc-amigaos cross-compiler from adtools project

The following is what I did to build and install the adtools cross-compiler on my x86 Ubuntu system. If you are installing on cygwin or otherwise already have write access to /usr/local/amiga then you can leave out the sudo command in the following instructions ("make install" instead of "sudo make install" f.e.). Requirements:
1. Checkout binutils, binutils-build, gcc and gcc-build from adtools SVN $ mkdir adtools $ cd adtools $ svn checkout svn:// binutils $ svn checkout svn:// binutils-build $ svn checkout svn:// gcc $ svn checkout svn:// gcc-build 2. Build and install binutils $ cd binutils-build $ make $ cd cross-trunk $ sudo make install 3. Install SDK files in /usr/local/amiga/ppc-amigaos/SDK The following directories (including contents) are needed from your AmigaOS 4.x SDK: /SDK/clib2 /SDK/newlib /SDK/include /SDK/local/clib2/include /SDK/local/clib2/lib /SDK/local/newlib/include /SDK/local/newlib/lib /SDK/local/common/include Note that the case of filenames is very important on linux (it should be f.e. /SDK/local/... and not /SDK/Local/...) 4. Create a soft link to the SDK from /SDK $ sudo ln -s /usr/local/amiga/ppc-amigaos/SDK /SDK 5. Build and install gcc $ cd gcc-build $ make $ cd cross-trunk $ sudo make install 6. Edit your ~/.bashrc file Add the following line there if you don't have it already: export PATH=/usr/local/amiga/bin:$PATH
