Thanks for the response. i am a bit new to kaffe world if thats not
obvious, but i maintain the mac version of the gnu adacompiler
(gnat). i guess i assumed i did something so stupid my previous
description would leap out at someone. but i did look at faq and
archive before sending it and didnt find anything.
with ld problem i get:
checking for ld used by GCC... sed: -e expression #1, char 7: Unterminated
for some reason it has trouble with my path
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/powerpc-apple-machten4/2.8.1/ld as if i supply the
path to the softlink it doesnt have any time finding it.
as to the size, i am doing a native compiler on machten using gcc
2.8.1. thanks for the tip about config.log i had never seen that file
before (sutupid of me i know). what i get from it for code that
finds the sizes is:
configure:2410: checking size of long
configure:2429: gcc -o conftest.xcoff -g -fsigned-char conftest.c 1>&5
configure: failed program was:
#line 2419 "configure"
FILE *f=fopen("conftestval", "w");
if (!f) exit(1);
fprintf(f, "%d\n", sizeof(long));
i can compile this program by hand and run it and it gives correct
results, don't knwo why config is rejecting it.

At a recent computer software engineering course in the US, the participants
were given an awkward question to answer. "If you had just boarded an
airliner and discovered that your team of programmers had been responsible
for the flight control software, how many of you would disembark
