             Bug #: 15178
           Summary: Target "elf32-sparc-freebsd" appears to be fiction.
           Product: binutils
           Version: 2.23
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: gas
        AssignedTo: address@hidden
        ReportedBy: address@hidden
    Classification: Unclassified

./gas/config/tc-sparc.h contains 

> #ifdef TE_FreeBSD
> #define ELF_TARGET_FORMAT       "elf32-sparc-freebsd"
> #define ELF64_TARGET_FORMAT     "elf64-sparc-freebsd"
> #endif

But this is the only mention of "elf32-sparc-freebsd" in the entire tree. 
Whereas ./bfd/elf64-sparc.c contains special handling that defines
"elf64-sparc-freebsd", there appears to be no similar handling in

The net result is that invoking "as -32" yields

> Fatal error: selected target format 'elf32-sparc-freebsd' unknown

"objdump -H" lists many supported targets, but elf32-sparc-freebsd is not among

This is OK -- I do not think anybody seriously attempts to build 32-bit ELFs on
FreeBSD on sparc (except by accident, as in
http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=55308 which brought this to my
attention), so I am not sure if the #define of "ELF_TARGET_FORMAT" should be
removed or if the current behavior is intentional, in which case, can I please
have a better error message?
