Title: xscale with gcc 3.0

Hi there,

I am trying to build a crossgcc for xscale now with the gcc 3.0, as it is said it is now supported.
My platform is linux (2.4.3)
Binutils builds without errors, but seems only to make the 'as', 'gasp' and 'ld'. Nothing else.

So when i try to build the (core) gcc-3.0 part of the toolchain, it fails :
make[2]: xscale-elf-ar: Command not found
make[2]: *** [libgcc.a] Error 127
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/jan/newbuild/gcc/gcc'
make[1]: *** [stmp-multilib] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jan/newbuild/gcc/gcc'
make: *** [all-gcc] Error 2

Same with "xscale-coff" configuration.
(i am following the cross-build script from Bill).

Now what's the story with xscale ? Is it fully supported or only a simpel assembler/linker?
I know I can make a cross-gcc by configuring for arm-elf (would arm-coff work too?), but
i don't understand why xscale-elf can't work if arm-elf does...

Thanks if you are able to clarify the confusion :)
