GDB Build: Running into problems

I got this error:

*** BFD does not support target i686-pc-msys.
*** Look in bfd/config.bfd for supported targets.
make[1]: *** [configure-bfd] Error 1

Seems to be a compatibility issue, but I'm hoping that someone here might know how to fix it.


Environment variable sare set correctly... so... yeah... it's run with administrative priviledges.

I don't really know what to do from here...

64-bit native build mingw + boost (nuwen's distro)

windows 8.1 os
if you need any more information, feel free to ask.

I haven't successfully built GDB, but you can try the binary here

Another option if you want a more up to date version of GDB and don't want to build it or re-build boost is install TDM mingw ( ) and copy the boost headers and libs to TDM. They are both using gcc-4.8 so it should work.

trying that tdm didn't work either. It couldn't get past g++...
