C++ – GCC: sorry, unimplemented: 64-bit mode not compiled in

c++gcc

I have built GCC 4.7 on my x86 32-bit linux system. When I try to cross-compile with the -m64 flag I get the following:

sorry, unimplemented: 64-bit mode not compiled in

while the compiler provided by default by my Linux distribution can cross-compile with -m64.

What do I have to pass to ./configure to enable the 64bit mode in GCC? These are the options I used to build GCC 4.7:

$ /usr/local/bin/g++ -v Using built-in specs.
COLLECT_GCC=/usr/local/bin/g++
COLLECT_LTO_WRAPPER=/usr/local/libexec/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.7.0/lto-wrapper
Target: i686-pc-linux-gnu
Configured with: ./configure --enable-multiarch --with-cloog=/usr/local/ --with-mpfr=/usr/local/ --with-ppl=/usr/local/ --verbose --enable-languages=c,c++
Thread model: posix gcc version 4.7.0 20120113 (experimental) (GCC)

EDIT:

–enable-multilib and –enable-targets=i686-pc-linux-gnu,x86_64-pc-linux-gnu

do not change the situation. The compiler still complains about 64 bit mode not compiled in:

$ g++ -v Using built-in specs. COLLECT_GCC=g++
COLLECT_LTO_WRAPPER=/usr/local/libexec/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/4.7.0/lto-wrapper

$ g++ -m64 c.cpp c.cpp:1:0: sorry, unimplemented: 64-bit mode not
compiled in

Best Solution

This typically means that you're using the wrong (old) compiler.

The new compilers support both -m32 and -m64. You have to set the PATH to the new compilers (in the gcc,MinGW subdirectory of Rtools) before any old compilers in Rtools.

Try updating your compiler's binary lib path to 64bit version. Other resources like lib folders also should change accordingly.
