Per, Brian, Harlan,
Thank you all for your help.
Per, you are correct to ask whether configure worked with
"--host=arm-bcm2708hardfp-linux-gnueabi-". It did not, and as you and
Harlan noted the trailing "-" had to be dropped.
The following script successfully produces a binary which runs on the
Raspberry Pi, but with one issue remaining about which I will write
make DESTDIR=`pwd`/:Built install
ls -l :Built/usr/local/bin
ls -l :Built/usr/local/sbin
(the PATH and ../configure are all on one line).
The one remaining issue is this. When starting the NTP server on the
Raspberry Pi I get the error message:
[....] Starting NTP server: ntpd/usr/sbin/ntpd: The 'user' option
has been disabled. -- built without --enable-clockctl or
--enable-linuxcaps or --enable-solarisprivs
and I note that when I compile on the Raspberry Pi I do use:
(yes, the linuxcaps was mis-spelt earlier) and the configure takes 11-15
minutes on the RPi. (there also seems to be duplication, e.g. in
testing for the size of integers....). However, you will see from my
script above that I do have the same option specified in the
../configure line for cross-compiling, but it seems to be ignored. I
tried it both at the start and at then# end of that line.
So much more progress than before, now perhaps 80% of the way there
thanks to all your help.
