Hello guys:

        In order to participate in OSMOCOM-BB project, I have buy the old
moto C118 and made the T191 cable by myself.
But when I run "make" in ****/src/osmocom-bb/src directory, the error info
is below:

alexander at Foundation:~/src/osmocom-bb/src$ make
cd shared/libosmocore/build-target && ../configure \
            --host=arm-elf-linux --disable-vty --enable-panic-infloop \
            --disable-shared --disable-talloc --disable-tests \
        CC="arm-elf-gcc" CFLAGS="-Os -ffunction-sections

make: *** [shared/libosmocore/build-target/Makefile] Error 77

After my investigating on this issue,   I think I must build my own
arm-elf-linux-gcc,  am I right?

I want to know how the experienced person handle this scenario? Please
answer my questions!
