Hello All,

              I am compiling u-boot version 1.1.0 for SC520_CDP
board. I ma trying to compile on a P.C with redhat version 9 and the
tools provided along with it.Compilation is sucessful after few errors
being handles. I ma running the command "make u-boot.bin" to get
binary file. The out file sizes are as follows.

u-boot            - 60442 bytes
u-boot.bin     - 947911360 bytes.
u-boot.map  - 116152 bytes.

This is really confusing since we get the raw binary by running the
"objcopy" tool on the ELF format file u-boot.

I treid version 1.0.0 but have same problem

Any help on this shall be really helpful
