Ok, building for /usr/local..

I'll leave that out then.

Hm, I didn't find your sources.. I only found the diffs, which does not
include the fix. I'm using the following:
- gcc2.7.2 from prep.ai.mit.edu
- plus gcc-2.7.2-1.diffs from ftp.fnet.fr
- plus this patch to loop.c (from email@example.com.DE, posted to
gnu.gcc.bug in September, line numbers slightly offset for 2.7.2):

Right, that saves a lot of work. I have it done now. Questions:
I have the following:
bin/ info/ man/ mipsel-linuxelf/
include/ lib/ mipsel-linux/
I have just tar'ed everything into one big tar file (compressed size is
almost 9MB), which includes binutils-2.6 mipsel-linux and mipsel-linuxelf,
gcc 2.7.2 mipsel-linux and mipsel-linuxelf. (I'm not sure if I it would be
enough with two versions of binutils and just one GCC, however I'm using
two GCCs for my own setup and I know this works so..)
- Should I split up this big mips-sgi-irix5.3.tar.gz file into binutils, gcc,
mipsel-linux, mipsel-linuxelf, or could I just keep it as it is -- a big,
'cd /;zcat file|tar xvf - ' one-go installation thing?
- Where should I ftp the file/the files? I've understood from the mail
archive that ftp.fnet.fr may not be the right place to ftp to, although
things will/should end up there after a while..

Got literally speaking meters of it here!
