[U-Boot-Users] Newbie question - cross

I am newbie to u-boot and linux.  I am working on a
board that uses MPC8540 and my host environment is Red
Hat 9.0.  I have a u-boot (ver 1.0.1) that works fine
on my board.  However, this u-boot was built using the
toolchain provided by Metroworks(gcc version 2.95.3)
and this toolchain is not under GPL!

My question is can someone point me to a GPL toolchain
that I can use to build the u-boot for MPC8540?

I have already tried using the croos-toolchain
provided from kegel.com (gcc-3.3.2-glibc-2.3.2).  I
use this toolchain to build my linux image and it
works fine.  However, the u-boot I built using this
toolchain does not work!  Unfortunately, I don't have
a BDI debugger to be able to see how far the u-boot
runs before it hangs!

Thanks in advance for your help,
