Subject: getting rid of newlib
From: Daniel Stenberg (daniel_at_haxx.se)
Date: 2002-06-15


Hey

We no longer link with or build any newlib stuff. We do however use some
"system headers" in our Rockbox code, that needs to come from somwhere.

Those who have built the cross-compiler without newlib will uncondionally
face this problem. They will get complaints from the compiler that won't find
headers such as "stdio.h" and similar.

These guys can fix this problem by adding "-I/to/wherever" to point to an
existing set of libc headers in the Makefiles, but it really isn't a very
comfortable situation.

I just now added a few libc header files to firmware/include, hoping that we
soon should be able to use these instead of the newlib ones.

The files are only added to CVS yet, they're not included in any tarballs nor
used in Makefiles, as we need to smoothen out the quirks and perhaps talk
about some issues first.
