   I am using am 8540 custom board.  As you have
suggested , I did download the latest u-boot-1.1.2
from CVS .With a few changes in the board-specific
config file I was able to successfully compile and
build it with ELDK-3.1 .

  I had to add -mno-string as well to
PLATFORM_CPPFLAGS (in u-boot cpu/85xx/config.mk)

   without that I couldnt see the serial output.

So thanks so much for all the help.

Thanks & Regards
