PowerPC port does not support "-c" option

I have cross-built strace 4.6.0 for my PowerPC target running Linux. I
statically linked strace.

I have two use cases,

- first is to attach it to a running daemon with more than 50 pthreads
using "-f" option followed by "-p". This is working just fine. I am
killing the strace instance by sending KILL signal.

- second is - in addition to the first one - to add "-c" option to get
statistics about the daemon. Although I kill the strace instance by
sending KILL command, it does not print the statistics. Sending INT
signal to strace instance does not help either. They both print

I tried to get more logs using "-d" option without luck.

My two use cases are working fine in a i686 Linux box.

Appreciate your helps on this.


it is twice as difficult to debug a program as to write it. Therefore, if
you put all of your creativity and effort into writing the program, you are
not smart enough to debug it.
