Has anyone brought up GNU C (GCC) and/or G++ on the tahoe?

We're doing extensive C, Ada, and GNU lisp work on a Harris HCX-9 and
I would like to know of others who are similarly involved!!!  Please
respond to this posting or via email or phone (407-729-3283).

Devon Bowen and some people at The University of New York at Buffalo
have GCC running on the tahoe.  His address is "".

I have been working on making the whole BSD Unix system compile under
gcc (the GNU C compiler).  UCB intends to use gcc as "cc" in future BSD
releases, though the old pcc compiler will still be around somewhere.
One big stumbling block is Franz Lisp, which is rife with machine- and
compiler-dependencies.  Rather than replace these fragile dependencies
with different fragile dependencies, I have been removing them, making
the code more portable.

After a few days' work, I have the Lisp interpreter compiling with gcc
and pcc (and presumably any other C compiler).  There are a few loose
ends to smooth out but it's basically there.  However, the Lisp
compiler is another matter; it seems to have lots more buried
assumptions about how various C language "global variables" (the stack
pointers) have magically been put into global machine registers.

It looks like this is turning into a bigger effort than I and Berkeley
can support.  Two questions:  Does anyone care if Franz Lisp moves into
/usr/old and is desupported in BSD releases?  And, is there anyone who
wants to take on the Lisp compiler conversion themselves?

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
