 Using some more up-to-date sources like egcs-1.1.2 or gcc-2.95 prerelease,
(the latest egcs snapshots) is higly recommended... The ARM-support in 2.8.1 is 
old and buggy...

 Using the binutils snapshots for ARM-targets may also be motivated...

 I would expect gcc-2.8.1 to NOT work for 'thumb-coff' at all.... Using the 
current egcs-GCC-release should work Ok :

  E:\usr\local\samples\sort>gcc-thumb-coff -v
  Reading specs from E:/usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/thumb-coff/egcs-1.12/specs
  gcc version egcs-2.91.66 19990314 (egcs-1.1.2 release)

 Cheers, Kai
