What has the ARMulator to do with that? (ARMulator=software
emulator of the ARM processor) If your program can't load/run
on the ARMulator, then yes you have a build problem. You should
be at least able to see the program going through the first
assembly instructions (obviously doing IO will be a problem...)

Looks fine. I don't know if you can load elf file to a board
with ADS though. And, you might need to modify newlib slightly to
support your board (unless you have such a Board Support Package).
I /think/ all board-specific stuff in newlib is in libgloss,
but I looked at newlib 15 minutes 3 months ago so don't hesitate
to think I'm wrong :-)
