I tried to build GCC on OpenServer 5 and it burst into flames.
|It is time to start using newer version of gcc. Take a look at ftp://ftp2.sco.com/pub/
The first FSF release of GCC to include the necessary support to host or
target OpenServer was 2.8.0. EGCS has supported OpenServer 5 since the
epoch. Anything before this requires a patched version of GCC.
The major contributors of the OpenServer code in GCC (Kean Johnston and Robert Lipe) are active members of the EGCS development team. EGCS is an enhanced GNU compiler system. EGCS contains complete support for OpenServer 5 in both COFF and ELF modes and has received much attention and testing. See http://gcc.gnu.org for more details.
GCC does include support for 3.2v4.2 and earlier SCO releases, though
it requires the SCO development system be installed.
|GCC 2.8.0, released in 01/98, almost has functioning support for the OpenServer
family of products. There is another entry in this FAQ that contains the
necessary directions to circumvent the problem.
|In recent years, GCC 2.95.3 has packaged and supported for OSR5
(and UW7 as well). No GCC 3.x is as of yet provided by SCO.
