Hi Peter,

So, I guess I'm saying that I'd prefer sticking to:
     if test "$GCC" != yes; then

Ok to push?

Could this break parity support? I know It's not in the tree yet, but I
still hope, that ralf comes to looking into my patch some day....

Well, my guess is that you would know if you have implemented reloadable
objects (the -r switch) in parity. If you don't know, I expect reloadable
objects are not supported and that this patch will help parity.

Hold on! Since parity is using a $host matching *winnt*, this patch doesn't affect parity at all.

BTW, did you file a copyright assignment?

I'm thinking of two problem cases:
- could be someone would like to use cccl with GNU binutils ld

I guess neither cccl nor parity will work with GNU ld right now, BUT: M$ own cc and cc89 scripts (which are used by M$ to build nearly the whole system
with MSVC as backend) use GNU ld, maybe those aren't too important, since
not many people except M$ use it, but still ...

This is exactly my point, the only thing that currently works with libtool
and gnu ld is gcc (at least I think so).

I.e. for these cases:

case $host_os in
  cygwin* | mingw* | pw32* | cegcc*)

                                         So, why make exceptions at this
time for something that doesn't work anyway? It can be added when (if ever)
all the other bits needed for cross toolchain support are added.

Regarding cc and cc89, that would be with interix as host, so not affected
by this. Right?
