Thanks, JMB. It hadn't quite clicked that everything is unix-style in the
build system. I'd already looked on riscos.info for a touch port, but not
found it in coreutils. All sorted now. Still can't get a build working on
RISC OS using GCC4.1.1, but managed to build some components with GCC3.
Sometime in the future I'll try harder with GCC4.
@Rob, I know you're right - I should invest the time to get the GCCSDK up
and running, but being only a casual Linux user, that's not trivial for me
and I don't have time right now. Thanks for the tip anyway.
Would be interested to hear from anyone who is building Netsurf and
dependencies on RISC OS with GCC4...
