    For anyone interested, LFS support looks to work pretty well
with paulus' pmac kernel (I'm using the test10 version from Nov 3;
probably the best birthday present I got this year ;) with the patch
included at end. Nothing clever there; just turning the stat64 etc.
sys calls on in arch/ppc/kernel/misc.S .

   Just in case it matters, I'm also using modified versions of:

  glibc-2.2-5 from Rawhide (mostly just had to kill -O3 in CFLAGS)
  gcc-2.95.2-1i from Yellowdog Champion 1.2 (needs a couple of patches
for glibc-2.2)

I'll get around to making this and some other stuff available
(LFS-enabled cpio, XFree86-4.0.1, rpm-4.x, blah blah) if anyone's

I'm interested not in getting the rpms, or even just updated sources,
but in acquiring the knowledge needed to do what you did, get it working
from sources.

Was LFS support the only thing you were trying to get working?
How did you come up with the need to do those particular patches?
What did you gain by modifying the glibc?
Did you develop the patches for gcc yourself or did you get the patches
from elsewhere?
