I build the new tool-chain using your script, and I have a few remarks :

- should the script not unpack uClibc and elf2flt itself, just as it does
for binutils, gcc, STLport ... ?

- must uClibc-0.9.19.patch.gz be applied, and how ?

- I have a patch available that fix a long-standing problem with -mcpu32
programs compilation :
	relocation truncated to fit: R_68K_PLT16
See attachment.

- I wonder why, if I compile a standalone client program with :

	make "CC=m68k-elf-gcc -v -m5307 -msep-data -Wl,-elf2flt" hello

it finds crt0.o, but fails with :

	hello.elf2flt: In function `_start':
	hello.elf2flt(.text+0x8): undefined reference to `__uClibc_main'

In my opinion, if crt0.o is automatically included, and crt0.o requests
libc.a, then libc.a must also be included.  As we build here a uClibc-
targetted compiler, I suggest that the build process adds -lc in the
specs file.  I have added '-lc' in the 'lib' field of the specs
file.  With that, I get a clean standalone compilation, and no problem for
the link of linux itself, because linux is not linked by gcc itself, but
directly by ld.
