4.4.1. GNU toolchain for Unix systems (gnu)¶
GNU toolchain for Unix systems.
This toolset generates makefiles for the GNU toolchain – GNU Make, GCC compiler, GNU LD linker etc. – running on Unix system.
Currently, only Linux systems (or something sufficiently compatible) are supported. In particular, file extensions and linker behavior (symlinks, sonames) are assumed to be Linux ones.
See GNU toolchain for OS X (gnu-osx) for OS X variant.
