Cross-compiled Sparc packages for testing
Joerg Sonnenberger is working on cross-compiling X applications
as part of this year's
xpkgsrc Summer of Code project.
He has a first
set of cross-compiled X binaries for NetBSD/sparc
up and is
looking for testers -- please get back to him directly! :)
Currently, NetBSD's X is built using a framework of reachover-Makefiles
that mirror the existing Imakefiles, and use NetBSD's cross-toolchain.
With X.org moving towards a heavily autoconf-based framework, the idea
is to use the 'native' X.org build environment (configure, ...), and
use NetBSD's wrapper-framework in pkgsrc to use its crosscompiler
instead of a native compiler.
