I'm using a Linux distro that doesn't have a 64-bit

However, I've run into snags, and the information
on the Web seems fragmented and dispersed.

Binutils seem to build without problems:

mkdir /opt64
tar zxfv binutils-2.18.tar.gz
cd binutils-2.18
./configure --prefix=/opt64 --target=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
make
make install

However gcc builds only the first stage and
at the end of that, it complains that it cannot
create the binary, seemingly because it doesn't
know the name for it (gcc).

export CFLAGS='-Dinhibit_libc'
export PATH=/opt64/bin:$PATH
tar jxfv gcc-4.3.1.tar.bz2
cd gcc-4.3.1
./configure --prefix=/opt64 --target=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu --enable-
languages=c --disable-shared --disable-multilib --enable-
threads=single --build=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
make

Can anyone assist?
Thanks.

What distro do you use that doesn't have a 64-bit version, and what hardware do you have that isn't compatible with the most popular distros? Maybe you could try a minimal installation of Debian.


And what OS and hardware are you building your toolchain on?
