[erlang-questions] R14B04 on Tilera TILEPro64?

I haven't played around with the Tilera cards since r13b -> r14b:ish so I
can't give you any more insight than that mail-thread atm.

>From what I remember, the compiling was pretty straight forward though
tile-gcc gave a lot more warnings than ordinary gcc. Mostly functions with
no prototypes. (seems scary when you first see it but its fine)

Look at the xcomp file for hints to configure. I might be the case that the
tilera-xcomp.conf file commited to the otp-repo is very tailored to the
Tilera card we have, and certainly  tailored to the MDE-version.

Btw, "xcomp" is a special procedure for cross-compiling OTP. It isn't
necessary to cross-compile it this way. You should be able to cross-compile
it the normal way, like any other open source project.

Also, I did do cross-compilation but the guys at Tilera Corp. uploaded
everything to the card and compiled OTP there instead. They didn't bother
with cross-compilation. That could be another option.
