Ok, got that one installed now. Now when I try to compile your version of 
"Das-Uboot" configured for your board I get the same compile error when I 
compile the standard uboot-1.1.2 configured for my board:

fl at linux:~/work/coldfire/uboot/Das-Uboot> make mrproper; make SOM5282EM_config; 
make all
Configuring for SOM5282EM board...

I think there's a little problem in the uboot makefile, so I'll post a patch for 
that soon to the u-boot mailinglist, but this one "only" relates to the includes 
but does not solve the error message.

Ok, I'm posting to both lists now and reply-to set to the coldfire list.
