FSF GNAT 4.3.4 binaries for OpenBSD/amd64 5.0

This is just a quick one to let you know that Tero Koskinen has done a couple of packages for OpenBSD/amd64 5.0 to help alleviate some of the pain of bootstrapping GNAT:

GNAT is somewhat painful to bootstrap on new platforms and existing binaries for OpenBSD/amd64 are for older releases, so I made fresh ones for OpenBSD 5.0 release on amd64 (x86_64 for Linux people) platform.
Tasking and most other “common” features should be supported, although I suspect that GNAT-AUX 4.6.x from http://www.dragonlace.net/ passes more ACATS tests. But once you have 4.3.4 installed, you can use it to bootstrap GNAT-AUX 4.6.x.

You can get the packages from http://koti.kapsi.fi/tkoskine/openbsd/5.0-amd64-packages/ and then it’s just a simple matter of using pkg_add to install them.

You can read the full release announcement from Tero here.

  1. Hi,

    It is better to use iki.fi/tero.koskinen instead of koti.kapsi.fi/tkoskine, since that (iki.fi) is more stable url. (I might some day change my web hosting from kapsi.fi to elsewhere and iki.fi (redirection) url will be more or less automatically updated to point to the new server.)
