Hi all,

This summer i took some time to run the testsuite on my BeOS version. It 
help me fix a lot of bugs. Some of then were even preventing me from 
running tests.

I also made some cleanup in the BeOS rtl by removing 5 include files in 
the BeOS directory (osposixh.inc, unxsysch.inc, unxsysc.inc, sysfile.inc 
and sysdir.inc). Those files came from older versions or didn't need to 
be BeOS specific anymore in the libc based RTL.

Here is a patch containing the result of this work : 

This zip file contains 4 files :
 - rtl.diff : contains differences with revision 8298 (trunk/rtl directory)
 - packages.diff : contains differences with revision 8298 
(trunk/packages directory)
 - tests.diff : contains differences with revision 8298 (trunk/tests 
 - tests_test_cg_obj_beos.zip : contains the objects files compiled with 
gcc under BeOS needed by some test cases.

With this patch i have less than 50 failed test cases. Most of then are 
related to threads or shared object generation.
