The Amigaos cross toolchain project by Krystian Bacławski provides an easy way to build AmigaOS 3.x (m68k) and AmigaOS 4.x (PPC) target toolchain in a Unix-like environment. There are no binary downloads provided for the time being. A cross compiler is a compiler capable of creating executable code for a platform other than the one on which the compiler is running. You have to have following packages installed in your system:

  • GNU gcc 5.x 32-bit version! or Clang
  • Python 2.7.x
  • libncurses-dev
  • python-dev 2.7
  • GNU make 4.x
  • perl 5.22
  • git
  • GNU patch
  • GNU gperf
  • GNU bison
  • For MacOSX users: you’ll likely need to have MacPorts or Homebrew installed in order to build the toolchain.
