Well, I have to admit that I don't know Xilinx's U-Boot code, This
list is intended for suppoort of the publicly available ("official")
source tree only.

Of cours ethe examples are a part of the U-Boot distribution.

This is not a correction. It is not even a work around. No part in  a
Makefile  should  in any way depend on the order in which targets are

My feeling is that you are hunting a dead rat, i. e. a bug that has
been fixed in the public U-Boot tree a long, long time ago.

Please try using a current version of U-Bot (1.3.1).
