[U-Boot-Users] Linking problem on new port

I have been using U-Boot for a while, but this is the first time I have
tried to port it to a new board myself, so please consider me a newbie!
I have a problem linking U-Boot for my new board. I know this is my
fault, I have missed something in the setup, can anyone point out what
it is that is missed?
The compile stage works, this is what I see when I try to link:
ppc_74xx-ld -Bstatic -T
-n $UNDEF_SYM cpu/74xx_7xx/start.o \
board/ppmc7xx/libppmc7xx.a cpu/74xx_7xx/lib74xx_7xx.a lib_ppc/libppc.a
fs/cramfs/libcramfs.a fs/fat/libfat.a fs/fdos/libfdos.a
fs/jffs2/libjffs2.a fs/reiserfs/libreiserfs.a fs/ext2/libext2fs.a
net/libnet.a disk/libdisk.a rtc/librtc.a dtt/libdtt.a
drivers/libdrivers.a drivers/sk98lin/libsk98lin.a post/libpost.a
post/cpu/libcpu.a common/libcommon.a --end-group -L
/opt/eldk3.1.1/usr/bin/../lib/gcc-lib/ppc-linux/3.3.3/m7400/pic -lgcc \
-Map u-boot.map -o u-boot
ppc_74xx-ld: invalid hex number `-n'
The $UNDEF_SYM is obviously wrong (I think!).
I am not surprised if I have missed things, so far I have written just a
skeleton for the board support, even if it links it won't run yet. I
have been adding things as needed, but I just can't find what is missing
here. Any suggestions?
I'd like to ask another question too whilst I'm here. I have a single
bank of Flash running from 0xFFC00000 to 0xFFFFFFFF. I want U-Boot to be
placed at 0xFFF00000 with the entry point at 0xFFF00100. Am I right to
set the following? If not, how do I achieve this?
#define CFG_FLASH_BASE 0xFFC00000
#define CFG_MONITOR_BASE 0xFFF00000
Is this related to the problem above?
