I really, really don't understand what you are actually doing. If you
put your code in the examples directory, then just adding the  binary
name  to the "BIN" definition in the "examples/Makefile" is *all* you
have to do to get it build correctly.

If you prefer to keep the code in your own board directory (which  is
a  much  better  approach, especially if you intend to submit it as a
patch) then just  have  a  look  at  the  trab_fkt*  targets  in  the

Nothing more needs to be done. Really.

If this does not work for you, then  your  toolchain  is  broken  and
should be replaced.

Your tool crashes  with  a  segmentation  fault.  That's  a  tolchain
problem.  Get  yourself  working  tools  and  forget  about  all this
