The GNU C Library currently supports configurations that match the following patterns:
alpha-anything-linux ix86-anything-gnu ix86-anything-linux m68k-anything-linux
Former releases of this library (version 1.09.1 and perhaps earlier versions) used to run on the following configurations:
alpha-dec-osf1 ix86-anything-bsd4.3 ix86-anything-isc2.2 ix86-anything-isc3.n ix86-anything-sco3.2 ix86-anything-sco3.2v4 ix86-anything-sysv ix86-anything-sysv4 ix86-force_cpu386-none ix86-sequent-bsd i960-nindy960-none m68k-hp-bsd4.3 m68k-mvme135-none m68k-mvme136-none m68k-sony-newsos3 m68k-sony-newsos4 m68k-sun-sunos4.n mips-dec-ultrix4.n mips-sgi-irix4.n sparc-sun-solaris2.n sparc-sun-sunos4.n
Since no one has volunteered to test and fix the above configurations, these are not supported at the moment. It's expected that these don't work anymore. Porting the library is not hard. If you are interested in doing a port, please contact the glibc maintainers by sending electronic mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each case of `ix86' can be `i386', `i486', `i586', or `i686'. All of those configurations produce a library that can run on any of these processors. The library will be optimized for the specified processor, but will not use instructions not available on all of them.
While no other configurations are supported, there are handy aliases for these few. (These aliases work in other GNU software as well.)
