You can get the current WinAVR patches from the winavr sourceforge page. Just
find the CVS link, and follow the directions there to checkout the patches.
Note that the patches are sorted numerically by category. The ones starting
with 00- and 10- should not be used on Linux, as they pertain to things like
ruining the path delimiter and adding "C:" to everything.
There are a number of gotcha's in the current state of building the AVR
- if the make of binutils fails, it may help to run 'make maybe-configure-bfd'
in the binutils diretory (below the obj/ directory), and all run 'make
headers' in the bfd directory (again, not in the obj directory tree). Then
continue building in the obj-avr directory. (Or obj, if that's what you
- also in binutils, you may experience a failure, with the compiler claiming
that you don't have makeinfo installed. This is a bug with binutils, and the
way I fixed it was to remove the makeinfo stuff from the makefile
in ./obj-avr/bfd/. Eric Weddington claims he has another way to make it
work, but I opted for the quick and dirty way.
- When doing a 'make install' for these packages, make sure the path in your
shell contains the path for the bin directory where the binutils tools go,
otherwise the install will fail.
You will probably want both avrdude and avarice.
Good luck. The toolchain build used to be a breeze, but it's getting harder
lately. Hopefully it will calm down soon, and you can continue to use the
nifty build scripts everyone keeps talking about.
