* manual generation: check dependencies firstGravatar Thomas De Schampheleire2013-11-013-4/+36
| | | | | | | | | | | To generate the manual, you need a few tools. If these are not present, pretty cryptic error messages are given. This patch adds a simple check for these dependencies, before attempting to build the manual.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | Revert commit feb0877015cc0c644129e69276b3000c83742750 U-Boot uses $(BUILD_DIR) and causes issues, other packages might as well.

* package: add a <pkg>_EXTRA_DOWNLOADS variableGravatar Thomas Petazzoni2013-10-081-0/+6
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Converting the external toolchain logic into a package raises a very special use case that wasn't handled by the package infrastructure: the Blackfin toolchain is delivered as two tarballs instead of one. Unfortunately <pkg>_SOURCE only allows to pass one tarball name. However, we really want both tarballs to be known by the package infrastructure, so that the normal 'source' and 'external-deps' mechanism work fine. In order to achieve this, we add a <pkg>_EXTRA_DOWNLOADS variable, which allows a package to list other stuff it would like to see downloaded, but that are otherwise not used by the package infrastructure itself: it is up to the package to do it by itself.

* toolchain/wrapper: add option to print one argument per lineGravatar Yann E. MORIN2013-09-221-0/+11
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | In case there are many arguments passed to the tools, the command line can get very long, and difficult to parse visually. For example, the Linux kernel passes a lot of arguments to gcc (at least 45, which gives 53 with our hard-coded args). Looking at such a command line is daunting. So, add the possibility to print each argument on its own line. Also, enclose all args between single quotes, so the command line can be safely copy-pasted without special chars (spaces, $) being inrerpreted by the shell. Add blurb about toolchain-wrapper to documentation at the same time. Signed-off-by: "Yann E.
