As agreed with Sebastian, I had a look at making the TL5 binaries
for Solaris, HP-UX, SGI and Linux (available platforms at Computer
Science Department here).
I started with Build script, hoping to 'make world' (and \relax),
which should build teTeX tree, extra utilities, binaries, formats, ...
It wasn't very relaxing, but the world built itself, eventually :-)
In short, programs compile cleanly under Solaris7, while HPUX and SGI
*take time* and several hand-made adjustments. I'd be glad to provide
a list of encountered problems. I've also kept most of the intermediate
log files, for details.
Three sets of binaries have been uploaded to sun2.dante.de today:
platform OS release directory
Sun SunOS 5.7 /texlive/bin/sparc-sun-solaris2.7
HPUX HP-UX 10.20 /texlive/bin/hppa2.0-hp-hpux10.20
SGI IRIX64 6.5 /texlive/bin/mips-sgi-irix6.5
They are based on sources dated Feb 29.
A few comments:
- HPUX and SGI: texinfo didn't build. relevant binaries are based on
the original texinfo-4.0 from gnu distribution.
- SGI: freetype didn't build, is missing.
- directory texmf-local (current TEXMFLOCAL) should be present for
'texconfig init', otherwise texconfig crashes looking for config.ps file.
(there is texmf-localconfig, but it doesn't seem to be used for anything).
