I've just uploaded source and binary packages of gcc, g++, cpp, and
libstdc++ to puffin.external.hp.com.  See
ftp://puffin.external.hp.com/pub/debian-hppa/ and

This is basically egcs 20000925 snapshot with the PA-RISC patches
applied.  It compiles itself (as far as I can tell - I've been
shortcutting a bit since the A180 is so horribly slow) and should now
manage to bootstrap itself; the previous version we had been using
miscompiled fold-const.c when not optimizing, as is the case when
building the initial bootstrap compiler (but not when cross-building
or building with simply 'make' rather than 'make bootstrap'...)

In order to bootstrap you must have the new compiler installed,
because the old one (20000822) will break as mentioned above.

There are also source packages of the latest binutils CVS source,
which I'll native build eventually (as mentioned above the A180 is
slow as molasses and I'm currently testing GCC bootstrap).  Alan:
would it be okay to check the Debian packaging stuff into our binutils
