I am trying to compile some GNUstep software - MusicKit and SndKit for my debian ppc box; I'm helping out on the project where I can (mainly documentation so far). After some successful compilations of various components a gcc compiler error appears:
parseScore.m:1465: Internal compiler error in `schedule_region', at haifa-sched.c:7777
Google points me to some messages saying this has been fixed in 2.95.2, but this is Potato stable and gcc -v gives me that. Try another version of gcc he thinks. Downloads source for 2.95.3 (warned against 3.0 by one of the developers), compiles in home directory, configured ultimately for /usr/local/.
Now for a very stupid question. How do I avoid interfering with my dpkg'd /usr/bin/gcc? Rename it temporarily before a make install on the new version? Is there an archive from which I could get a suitable .deb package for an earlier release of gcc even?
Although some might suggest I go back to doing what I actually know about, one of the developers in particular is keen to know whether the software compiles on something other than intel machines.
