Ticket #2568 (closed defect: fixed)
GCC testsuite requires file
|Reported by:||matthew@…||Owned by:||bdubbs@…|
As reported by Bruce at http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/pipermail/lfs-dev/2010-February/063515.html, the GCC testsuite depends on File. More specifically, it only depends on File on certain architectures, of which x86_64 is one. Folks building on 32-bit aren't affected. See gcc/testsuite/gcc.misc-tests/linkage.exp (search for 'exec file').
Moving File to before GCC should be safe enough, and appendix C needs to be updated to reflect the dependency
