Yeah, looks like I might've jumped the gun there. Turns out I was writing:


instead of the correct syntax:

INCLUDE linkcmds.robsdsets

In my opinion, a little inconsistant on GNU's part but whatever. :/

That's only half the problem though. Prior to noticing that, I was just
getting the ever-helpful "syntax error" message. Now I get "cannot open
linker script file linkcmds.robsdsets: No such file or directory".
Obviously, ld can't find my file.

Right now, I've got things setup so that linkcmds.robsdsets sits in
m68k/shared/startup and m68k/Makefile.am is aware of it with:

dist_project_lib_DATA = shared/startup/linkcmds.robsdsets.

I've already run ./bootstrap -p to regenerate m68k/preinstall.am. My memory
could be wrong but I don't think there even was an m68k/preinstall.am file
until I added the line:

include $(srcdir)/preinstall.am

I even re-bootstrapped just for good measure (still have no idea what that
thing is for though; it would be nice if --help would so kindly tell me).

I'm gonna hold off on submitting the rest of my patches until I can get
this fixed. I'm sure it's just something simple that I overlooked. I can
rewrite each .robsdsets section in seconds.
