12 If you are using gcc
13 --------------------
14 It makes life much simpler if you only use the same gcc consistently
15 for building all packages.
16

18 gcc from pkgsrc, lang/gcc3 is recommended.

26 # Configure scripts don't always get this right
27 MACHINE_GNU_PLATFORM=powerpc-ibm-aix4.3.3.0
28 CC=gcc
29 CHECK_SHLIBS=no
30 RENAME=
31 USE_GCC3=yes
32 PKGMAKECONF=${MAKECONF}
33 --- Cut here ---
34
35 You also need to setup a few environment variables:
36
37 PKG_DBDIR=/usr/pkg/pkgdb
38 MAKECONF=/usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf
39 MAKESYSPATH=/usr/pkg/share/mk
