We cannot get T to run on our Sun 3/50 machines because they do not
have 68881 co-processors. I tried the simple-minded approach of
recompiling tsystem/float.c with the -fsoft option and then re-linking
(i.e., system-suspend of the existing system followed by linkt with
the new float.o), but that didn't do the trick. Do I have to rebuild
the entire system (shudder!) just to get a version with soft
floating-point? Or is there some simpler way?
I don't know why this would not work. How did it fail? In any event, it
should not be a big deal to rebuild the system using the sunbuild.t script.
I assume you have t3.1?
