This is the ELDK mailing list. We cannot comment on OpenWrt - there
are other OpenWrt related mailing lists out there where yiu might get
better help for that.

Why are you not sure? It is clearly written in the documentation.
Please let me know which part of
http://www.denx.de/wiki/view/DULG/ELDKSupportedTargetArchitectures you
did not understand so we can improve that.

What was the exact command you tried, and in which environment did you
try it? And are you sure that the ELDK linraries you are linking
against are compatible with the OpenWrt ones used inyour target?

Well, reading the documentation should help.
