I never meant otherwise in my previous message. But basic knowledge /
problem solving of the build system is a requirement IMHO, especially
in this project (that includes both host and target code with even
some shared code between the two).

I also looked up his history on the various mailing lists before
posting this and this is not the first build problem with GSM related
projects so I would expect him to learn from previous experience.

Also, when I see a message with :

zaki at zaki-desktop:~/gnuarm-4.0.2/bin$ file ./arm-elf-gcc
./arm-elf-gcc: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV),
dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.4.1, stripped
zaki at zaki-desktop:~/gnuarm-4.0.2/bin$ uname -a
Linux zaki-desktop 2.6.28-11-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 17

And he still asks what's wrong ? An embedded programmer that doesn't
know he can't just run binaries from one architecture onto another
architecture ...

> By the way, he can always learn...

I know, that's why there is a "quite just yet" at the end. That's
exactly what I implied: that he learns that first and then come back.
