I used an existing gnuarm toolchain that I had compiled long time ago,
but I think this step may be unnecessary for for most users. When I
tried repeating this step on another PC - Ubuntu threw up a a series of
dependency errors between G++ and binutils, and I just didn't bother
with recompiling the gnuarm chain again. I could probably have copied it
from one machine to the other, but the simplest route was simply copying
the layer1 bin file across.

I have put my build here:

Then all you have to do is
make osmocon
make layer23

And you have the executables you need to get started.
