Your problem descriptionis very misleading.  THe error messages posted
below have nothing to do with this patch, and they do NOT happen when
you apply the patch, but at a much later stage of the building, i. e.
when you finally run the bitbake tool.

It appears you have forgotten to set your PATH (i. e. either you did
not source the oe-init-build-env script, or you modified your PATH
after this manually.  In any case, it is wrong to see
"/usr/bin/bitbake" running here.  If your PATH was set correctly, this
would resolve into "~/git/eldk/scripts/bitbake".

Please check the build instructions, make sure to follow them exactly,
and do not omit any steps.
