Yes I know. It's *the* building stone.

I won't ask you for a date, and I'm thankful for all the work DENX has put
into ELDK and Das U-Boot. But, I'll try to replace 2.17 in ELDK and see how
it goes for my target (and hopefully provide you with some useful information).
Btw, have you tried crosstool-ng? It seems to be a lot more updated than Dan
Kegels old crosstool script.
