It looks like Fabrice needs to add make rules to allow redboot.bin (and
probably also redboot.srec) files to be generated, as with other targets.
Fabrice, look at e.g. the CYGBLD_BUILD_REDBOOT_BIN option in the EBSA HAL.
You can probably just copy it and remove the "compile -library" line.

Niky, on the meantime you can do this yourself with objcopy -O binary
redboot.elf redboot.bin
