The ELDK 3.1.1 tools were built in March 2005 using a RedHat 7.3 based
build host, with a 2.4 kernel etc.  A _lot_ of things have changed
since; there is no guarantee that the old binaries will still execute
correctly in the new environment - using totally different shared
libraries etc.  Even if everything appears to work fine you can never be

For a production environment such uncertainty is not acceptable. Here
you must be able to fully trust your tools.  The only feasible
approach here is to run in a supported OS environment - either on a
phyical or on a virtual machine.  Given that it may be difficult to
run such old kernels on current hardware (for example, you may find
that there are no drivers for the S-ATA controllers in your PC), it is
much easier and much less maintenannce effort to set up a virtual
