Hi Wolfgang,

I am following the instructions that have been given in your guide to port
the linux to Freescale ADS boards. I am attaching few lines of the initial
error here for your reference. Hope this will help you in guiding me to
resolve the make menuconfig command. I feel this is because of warning:
multi-line strings not supported, if yes please let me know the solution.
