Cygwin to Linux on PowerPC uClibc based cross compiler and tool chain

osi-certifiedThis is a full uClibc tool chain for building Linux PowerPC binaries on a Cygwin environment running under Windows(TM) using GCC 2.95. Included is also the build script, which is a slight adaptation of the buildroot tool by the uber embedded Linux guru Erik Andersen.

Note that this is a work in progress – specifically, we know building static binaries work (in both C and C++) but haven’t checked dynamic executables yet. Also, the adapted build script needs some manual massaging at this point to work (you need to rename some produced executables to remove the .exe extension and re-run ‘make’ after the script fails to get it to finish). Use it at your own risk.
