Subject: arm-eabi compiler

arm-eabi compiler

Hi builders.

We will soon be moving some builds to the arm-eabi compiler. That means we need build clients with it installed. So if you haven't already, please run tools/ (as root, normally) and choose 'e' to build and install it.

I have changed a little so it now installs all compilers in /usr/local/bin instead of /usr/local/<target>/bin. This means you need to make sure /usr/local/bin is in your $PATH. You do _not_ need to rebuild any compilers you already have installed.

After you have built the new gcc, add "arm-eabi-gcc444" to the -archlist parameter in your script.

And while you are editing, please also add a "sleep 30" just before the final "done" line. This should make the "dupe name" problem occur less.

Note that the changed install dir of means that if you want to rebuild an already installed compiler, make sure you remove the old one first. Otherwise you will end up with two separate installations, which may cause confusion.
