Having been frustrated in my last attempt to recompile a working
Linux/MIPS filesystem, I nuked my Linux/i386 system, reinstalled Debian
from scratch, and decided to get back on to the bull's back.
I grabbed the precompiled binutils and cross-compiler, and untarred them
from the root directory. Then I untarred glibc-2.0.1 (again, from
ftp.fnet.fr) in my home directory. Now configure seems to be confused; I
made a file "configparms" and put the definitions for CC=mipsel-linux-gcc,
etc in it. Then I typed "configure mipsel-linux" but it doesn't appear to
be incorporating the configparms definitions. Instead, it tries to use
plain old gcc, ar, as, etc, instead of mipsel-linux-gcc, mipsel-linux-as,
Am I doing something wrong?
