Description

2 years ago
Over in bug 1289847, we added a custom build of Apple's linker to work around flaws in older build infrastructure.  It would be good to have the script for building the linker available in-tree so people can rebuild the linker if necessary.

add build script for custom Mac linker

This is basically what I did when I built it.  I wrote it in shell instead of
Python because shell is much more convenient than Python for executing a bunch
of commands.

Thanks for adding this! I guess 'import cctools; cctools.build_custom_ld64()' doesn't work yet in python?
