Hi David,

Here is a patch to allow hpux's som target to build on non-hpux hosts.

Thanks for submitting this.  I have a couple of comments on the patch:

* I think that the somswap.h file would be better off in the bfd/ directory rather then the include/som directory, on the basis that this is exactly the sort of thing that the bfd library tries to hide from its users.

* What is the purpose of the include/som/a.out.h header ? It just includes other headers which could easily be done by its users.

How did you test this patch ?   (ie which non-hpux hosts did you try it out on 

The patch applies to binutils-2.18, and is licensed under gpl v2.

The files in the patch are copyrighted to Quest Software. As far as I am aware Quest Software does not have a binutils copyright assignment on file with the FSF, so we cannot accept the file as is. Would Quest Software like to file a copyright assignment ?

Also - the current binutils sources are licensed under gpl v3. Are Quest Software prepared to allow their patch to be relicensed under this version ?
