Hello Wolfgang,
 Ok. Thank you for the reality check. Could you please tell me where i can
get a reliable toolchain so I can end my frustration?
 FWIW, I am not currently adding new code, I am just trying to get the
existing examples directory to build. I talked to my more knowledgeble
co-worker and he told me that my approach was not what I wanted anyway. By
statically linking to the libraries as
I have done, I am not created a loadable applet which is my main goal.
 Many thanks in advance,
