Building the compiler or just using it ?  For using it, its all the
usual Unix documentation.

RRD-Tool is awesome, especially when combined with the perl module for
it.  GCC should be an IEEE compatible compiler so it should work out of
the box!

Configure fails (under my cross-compiler environment anyway) and I
haven't figured out why.  The test program does build, so configure
seems to be the problem I guess.  Try hacking configure so it just
doesn't do the test for IEEE.

checking for fpclassify... no
checking for fpclassify with <math.h>... no
checking for finite... yes
checking for isinf... yes
checking if realloc can deal with NULL...
checking if IEEE math works out of the box... yes
configure: creating ./config.status

I hope you have a good FPU!  RRDTool is heavy on floating point math.

Can't help there.
