I will add the results of some tests I ran on last Ubuntu 11.10, 64bit. 
Even very old ELDKs are running flawless, with my big surprise. I have 
tested the following release, compiling a Kernel (ppc_8xx) and small app 
in user space:

ELDK-2.1.10	OK	(tested ppc_8xx)
ELDK-3.1.1	OK	(tested ppc_8xx)
ELDK-4.2	OK	(tested ARM)
ELDK-5.0	OK	(tested ARM)

I cannot tell you which is the problem on Fedora 16, but at least I can 
state that even obsolete release are still working on (some) actual distros.

Best regards,
