Did I misread your docs?


   - Compile a file:

   bash$ ${CROSS_COMPILE}gcc -o hello_world hello_world.c

   You can also call the cross tools using the generic prefix
*arm-linux-*for example:

   bash$ arm-linux-gcc -o hello_world hello_world.c

   - or, equivalently:

   bash /opt/eldk/usr/arm-linux/bin/gcc -o hello_world hello_world.c

You mean why some kernels are still configured to only support ARM OS/ABI?
I don't know either.  Legacy issue, I suppose.
