Looking at Patrick's release notes for the hal-i386-pc-19991028.tgz
file, that release is intended to work with the current sources as
available via anonymous CVS
( http://sourceware.cygnus.com/ecos/anoncvs.html ). The base_platform
facility was added to pkgconf.tcl and the targets file after the eCos
1.2.1 release, so trying to use that release in conjunction with 
hal-i386-pc-19991028.tgz is going to be problematical. In fact there
may be other incompatibilities as well.

You will need to either:

1) work with the current eCos anonymous CVS sources, in conjunction
   with Patrick's latest release.


2) work with the eCos 1.2.1 release and Patrick's original
   i386-pc-0.1.tgz file.

I suspect the earlier problems were caused by a similar
incompatibility problem.
