I wanted to compile a GHDL for my PowerPC iMac G4 17″.
However, instead of compiling it for myself, I tried the MacPort to download prebuilt binaries for the necessary tools.
I knew that gnatmake is necessary. It seems to me that it is in GNAT project. So, I searched the MacPort. Oh.. there is the GNATS.
So, I downloaded it. But there was no gnatmake.
So, probably the gnats has something wrong, and decided to build for myself. Hmm.. I downloaded the GNAT. and it complains some conflicted declaration on wswap, and so on.
I didn’t want to waste my time, although I tried modifying troubled source codes at least. So, I searched where I can get the gnatmake from the MacPort.
Wow.. what I found out from searching is that GNAT is different from GNATS.
GNAT is a GNU bug tracking software, while the GNATS is the Ada compiler.
People should be careful about naming projects…
