Re: cvs commit: src/usr.bin/objformat

From: Matthew Dillon <dillon@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

:If you want to ensure you have a gcc 3.4 only system, CCVER is a bit
:difficult. E.g. it doesn't work if the environmental variable gets
:lost and so on. Allowing to change the default of objformat makes it
:friendlier at least for those trying to tweak the bugs out of a 3.4
:only world.
:>     At a minimum I would recommend that the BINUTILSVER_DEFAULT be removed.
:>     That can create massive confusion.  I would prefer objformat to select
:>     the binutils to use based on the CC version.
:Actually it seems to be a nop anyway. I want to keep BINUTILSVER_DEFAULT,
:but it will have the meaning of the fallthough entry if CCVER points to
:an unknown compiler. For the other cases, I'll defines to centralise changes
:of binutils versions.

    The intention is for objformat to understand all the possible compilers
    we might have in the system.

    In anycase, I think this is ok if you rename the make.conf variable to
    make it clear that it is a compile-time variable for objformat and not
    a dynamic variable.  Maybe something like OBJFORMAT_BUILD_CCVER_DEFAULT
    instead of CCVER_DEFAULT.  Something that cannot be mistaken :-)
