To fix isl without downloading it manually, just run this within the cloned package, it gets the source from instead:

$ sed -i -e 's/http:\/\/\/isl-${_islver}.tar.bz2/https:\/\/\/pub\/gcc\/infrastructure\/isl-${_islver}.tar.bz2/g' PKGBUILD

isl download is broken. You can get it from here:

I also get a build error:

/var/cache/yay/gcc48-alternative/src/gcc-4.8.5/gcc/reload1.c:89:24: error: use of an operand of type ‘bool’ in ‘operator++’ is forbidden in C++17
   89 |   (this_target_reload->x_spill_indirect_levels)

Not sure why.

Side note: I don't think you can use "-j 8" or similar for parallel compilation.

I encountered the following error message when trying to compile this package:

error: cannot compute suffix of object files: cannot compile

From looking in one of the "config.log" files, it turned out that the underlying error from the compiler was this:

error: unrecognized command line option '-fno-plt'

However, after changing the PKGBUILD to remove the "-fno-plt" switch from the CFLAGS and CXXFLAG variables, I was able to successfully compile it. The change I made to the PKGBUILD was to add these two lines to the build() function:

Hello, i was unable to compile the package as it because of this line: make -C $CHOST/libstdc++-v3/doc doc-man-doxygen

the compilation process was generating an "unknown" architecture, hence the folder was not the same as $CHOST (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu vs. x86_64-pc-linux-gnu)

Therefore, i added to the configure line of gcc: --build="${CHOST}" \

this solved my problem! (PS: I took the additional build line from the gcc48-AUR)

@severach: thanks for pointing on fix. @dangersalad: should be fixed now.

Try the ucontext patch in gcc48.
