I don't have the "net" package available as an option package in
the Build->Template... dialog box. Instead  I do
a Cirrus Logic development board + "all" template. Then I
do I Build->Packages.. and select the "Networking" package which
I "Add>>" to the configuration. This adds the Networking node in
the configuration tree (with thoses "initialization option for eth0"
subnodes greyed out).

May be the TCP/IP package installation was not properly made.
But what I did for this purpose was
Red Hat eCos -> Package Administration Tool
then click on "Add.." and select the "net-1.0b1.epk" from the
"Open eCos Package Files" file selector.
Is this OK?

I'm using the distribution version (v1.3.1 release for eCos and
v1.0b1 release for the TCP/IP stack).
