This problem has been driving me crazy, and I'm not the only one it seems.
I'm sure I don't understand all the issues, but here is a quick summary:
-We are in good company. There are many reports in various places about
-The mingw32 cross RPMs from opensuse have the same "problem" with float.h.
-Undefined symbols _clear87 and _control87 are commons symptoms of this
problem, especially when building Qt.
-No standard solution as far as I can tell.
-I still don't understand how Qt managed to build GCC 4.4 with the mingw
include directory first.
-I spent too much time trying without success to build GCC 4.5 with the
mingw include directory first. ):
I know what you mean, --with-sysroot and --with-local-prefix really
sound like they are what you want. The closest I could get was using a
spec file as outlined here:
$i686-pc-mingw32-cpp -v -specs=specs</dev/null
Using built-in specs.
Reading specs from specs
#include "..." search starts here:
#include <...> search starts here:
End of search list.
I've attached the modified spec file I used, the most important option
is -nostdinc. The only section I changed is the *cpp. I'd didn't get
to figuring out how to generate the file and putting it in the right
spot to be found automatically.
