ppc e500v2 support?

Frans Meulenbroeks <fransmeulenbroeks@...>


I'm trying to add my powerpc board to yocto (as a test). This board
mpc8536ds has an e500v2 core. It works under OE (MACHINE =
"calamari"). but gcc-cross-initial fails in do_compile when it tries
to run configure for the libgcc subdir.
The problem is similar to http://patchwork.openembedded.org/patch/2026/

Basically gcc-cross-initial fails building libgcc, config.log has:
cc1: error: not configured for ABI: 'spe'

I feel this is related to the generation of the host triplet.
OE has conf/distro/include/sane-toolchain.inc which has a func
this one adds gnuspe to the host triplet (and maybe some other things).

poky does not give me that part of the triplet.

Anyone an idea what is wrong (I can provide machine description etc,
but it is also all in the OE git).

Best regards, Frans
