We recommend installing the following GNU tools before attempting to build the GNU C library:
make3.75 You need the latest version of GNU
make. Modifying the GNU C Library to work with other
makeprograms would be so hard that we recommend you port GNU
makeinstead. Really. We recommend version GNU
makeversion 3.75. Versions 3.76 and 3.76.1 are known to have bugs which only show up in big projects like GNU
binutils2.8.1 Using the GNU
binutils(assembler, linker, and related tools) is preferable when possible, and they are required to build an ELF shared C library. We recommend
binutilsversion 2.8 or later; earlier versions are known to have problems or to not support all architectures.
texinfo3.11 To correctly translate and install the Texinfo documentation you need this version of the
texinfopackage. Former versions did not understand all the tags used in the document and also the installation mechanisms for the info files was not present or worked differently. On some Debian Linux based systems the used
install-infoprogram works differently. Here you have to run make like this:
make INSTALL_INFO=/path/to/GNU/install-info install
