[uClinux-dev] Hacking the compiler specs file

I'm trying to port some applications to uClinux using m68k-elf-gcc. Most
autoconf scripts (and many plain Makefiles) fails since the compiler
behaves differently than expected. Though I really don't *understand*
the compiler specs file, I compared it with a standard RedHat gcc and
the m68k-pic-coff-gcc, and tweaked it so that it works much better for
me. As an example, on most systems I know of, you can compile the famous
hello.c with just "gcc -o hello hello.c". With my new specs file, this
is the case (it incorporates the "-m68000 -Wl,-elf2flt -lc"). Now most
autoconf scripts runs OK, giving me a good starting point, with the
following input:
CC=m68k-elf-gcc ./configure (...)

I attach the file in case it helps anyone. It is meant to replace
/opt/uClinux/lib/gcc-lib/m68k-elf/2.95.3/specs though I recommend saving
the original. I use the original for compiling the kernel and other
stuff that has the right magic in it's Makefiles already.

But this whole issue puzzles me, so a few questions remains:
1. Why wasn't the compiler configured this way in the first place? Are
there any drawbacks?
2. Did I completely misunderstand the whole problem? Are you all having
a bunch of magic environment variables set that obsoletes my work? Are
you now laughing at me? :-)
3. Did I break anything when hacking the specs, making up for future
