yup...thats right.

I went to the redhat website, followed the simple instructions for
compiling arm-elf, and after that the error vanished. 

PS: related to that, can someone explain why the linux kernel now sees
only 16Mb of the 32Mb RAM, on the assabet+neponset.
...For it to see 32Mb, I have to pass it to the kernel in the parameters
as "mem=32M ..."

And thanks, Jesper and Jonathan, for the help.
