This part of the LDFLAGS variable definition (which holds the  linker
options) comes from the config.mk file:


As you can see, the "-Ttext" argument should be followed by the  base
address  of  your  text  segment,  which gets defined in your board's
config.mk file; obviously you missed  to  define  TEXT_BASE  in  your
board/<whatever>/config.mk file.
