Compiling libc-4.4.4: what's mkimage?

Compiling libc-4.4.4: what's mkimage?

Post by Shamim P. Moham » Thu, 09 Dec 1993 11:57:04

I finally decided to upgrade my libc to 4.4.4, but I couldn't find a binary on
sunsite or tsx-11 (are they around anywhere?), so I thought ok, I'll just
compile it.... and it dies trying to find "mkimage" when I try to build a
shared version (make SHARED=true). I have no idea what this is, I just know I
don't have it! And it doesn't seem to be on sunsite or tsx-11. Make expects it
to be in /usr/dll/bin/mkimage, but I don't have /usr/dll (SLS 1.03). And
again, I couldn't find anything like "dll" at the standard sites.

So could someone (in decreasing order of preference):
   i) point me at a binary for 4.4.4;
  ii) show me where I find mkimage; or
 iii) show me DLL

(I have 1.3 installed.)

1. BUG: 'tar +help' doesn't work with!!

I just got and installed the new libs in image-4.4.tar.z.
I updated the links so that they are referenced.  I later tried
to to a 'tar +help' command and tar didn't recognize it.
It had always worked before, so i tried linking the library
reference back to the old lib (  'tar +help'
worked fine!  I changed the link back to the new, tried
'tar +help' again, and it didn't work...obviously a bug somewhere.
(In tar or I haven't the foggiest...)
