as a very first step in direction to a CRUX 2.5 release
I've prepared ports that might be possibly used for our
tool-chain. For now the ports are available in my personal
repo , bootstrapped packages can be obtained from .
* binutils 188.8.131.52.9
Because regular updates from upstream are very occasionally,
I thought that using the ones hosted/maintained on kernel.org
 might be an option for us.
The drawback is, that the man-pages are not prebuild, so
texinfo is a build requirement. Sure, we can patch binutils
and provide a tarball with the man-pages, but I'd prefer to
add texinfo to our toolbox because I run into similar
problems with other ports as well.
* glibc 2.8 with kernel-headers 2.6.26
Tarball created from cvs with -r glibc_2.8-branch which
includes one patch after the glibc_2.8 tag .
Remember, locales are not generated, see this thread in
* gcc 4.3.2
It's the same Tilman has committed to core-x86_64, with
some minor adjustments. New dependencies are libgmp and
libmpfr, both are available in  too.
