I have an Origin200 with 6.5.20m and would like to install gcc 3.2.2 from the SGI freeware site to be able to compile software. From the freeware site on gcc 3.2.2:
This gcc requires the SGI back-end (assembler and linker) since the GNU back-end (binutils) doesn't yet support the new SGI ABIs. The SGI back end (including an assembler and linker supporting the n32 and 64 ABIs) plus all the bits and pieces needed for gcc (headers, libraries, runtime startup files, etc.) are included for free with any IRIX 6.5 distribution on the 2 CDs titled Development Foundation and Development Libraries (in other words you don't need to have the SGI IDO in order to use gcc.) In recent SGI compiler releases, the SGI assembler and linker are in the subsystem compiler_dev.sw.base. For older IRIX 6.x releases you can download the IRIX Development Foundation and Libraries from SGI Developer Central.
I have the full set of IRIX cds, including Development Foundation 1.1 and Development Libraries 1.1 and I have a couple of questions:
1.) When the requirements ask for the "SGI back end" exactly what componets from the Dev. Found. and Libs. disks do I need to install?
2.) As these are older versions of the Dev. Found. and Libs. disks, ver 1.1 and most componets seem to be geared toward MIPSPro 7.2, will the the "back end" componets on these disks be compatible with gcc 3.2.2?
Help on which componets to install and any tips to get started would be much appreciated.
BTW, I see there is a newer binary (gcc 3.3) on the Written Word:

Has any one tried this build?
