Seems to be working now,
I am using this binutils-gold package though: 2.20.1-3, not the one from
I commented out this line in debian/rules.defs
# FIXME: stripping doesn't work with gold
#with_gold := no
I disabled the testsuite too (was taking way too long):
# if you don't want to run the gcc testsuite, uncomment the next line
with_check := disabled by hand
I had some trouble with building the doc packages, so I just did
a 'touch stamps/05-build-javadoc-stamp', didn't figure out how to turn
off the build of the docs package completely.
I installed these debs:
ii cpp-4.5 4.5-20100321-1
The GNU C preprocessor
ii gcc-4.5 4.5-20100321-1
The GNU C compiler
ii gcc-4.5-base 4.5-20100321-1
The GNU Compiler Collection (base package)
ii gcc-4.5-multilib 4.5-20100321-1
The GNU C compiler (multilib files)
ii lib32gcc1 1:4.5-20100321-1
GCC support library (32 bit Version)
ii lib32gomp1 4.5-20100321-1
GCC OpenMP (GOMP) support library (32bit)
ii libgcc1 1:4.5-20100321-1
GCC support library
ii libgomp1 4.5-20100321-1
GCC OpenMP (GOMP) support library
ii libstdc++6 4.5-20100321-1
The GNU Standard C++ Library v3
apt-cache and everything else still seems to be working.
I found the LTO plugin here (it was not installed by the package)
So I copied it to /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/4.5/liblto_plugin.so
manally, and -fuse-linker-plugin seems to be working now
(well I get an ICE from it when trying to build ClamAV, will open a bug
about that shortly).
Can you please make the package install liblto_plugin.so when with_gold

I'm not sure I understand what 'this' refers to here (#575448 or
#571169), so I'll just report it here.
