Build XINU on Mac OS X
To setup a MIPS cross-compiler on Mac OS X, we followed almost the exact same procedure as the tutorial for setting up the cross-compiler in a Linux environment. The only difference lies in the second configure command.
In Linux the command looks as follows:
./configure \ --prefix=/usr/local/project/mipsel-dev \ --target=mipsel \ --with-sysroot=/usr/local/project/mipsel-dev/mipsel/ \ --enable-languages=c make make install
In Mac OS X you will want to run the same command with different options, as follows:
./configure \ --prefix=/usr/local/project/mipsel-dev \ --target=mipsel \ --enable-languages=c \ --without-headers \ --disable-intl make make install
Besides these differences, your cross-compiler setup on Mac OS X should be the same as the setup in a Linux environment.
