#12078: Cross-compiling for PPC fails
Reporter: haiqu | Owner: bonefish

Comment (by haiqu):

Build of target bootstrap-raw failed, and here's the reason:

Prerequisites: Haiku is not yet supported as a build platform.

Well, that ends it. If the developers don't have the confidence to build
on the target platform after 14 years, we all may as well give up.

As for all the jiggery-pokery described above, any bootstrap build system
that relies on an online repository and the availability of prebuilt
packages seems to miss the point entirely.

And btw, there seems to be no ncurses_development online (or in the
haikuporter tree) even for x86 so it would have failed again further on.
