I tested current mainline with two different configurations (using
mpc5200_defconfig and mpc85xx_defconfig).  Both build fine with just
sourcing the env file, un-setting LDFLAGS, and running "make" without
any specific command line options, i. e. just

	-> make mpc85xx_defconfig
	-> make -s -j8 uImage

In which way is your kernel different?  where does it throw errors?
