(i'm hoping this is the right place to ask this.)
i'm reading the current version of the cross-lfs book and have a
couple questions about building the cross-compile toolchain WRT to
section 5.5.1 lists the options to use to configure binutils, and
i'm curious about two of those options as compared to how the
"crosstool" utility builds a toolchain.
first, crosstool doesn't use "--with-lib-path" but *does* use
"--with-sysroot". does that second option subsume the first in terms
of the library search path?
also, crosstool doesn't use "--enable-shared" when configuring
binutils. what's the significance of that? clearly, since crosstool
does build a working toolchain, that option can't be essential.
thanks for any info.
