[ECOS] ecos configure fails for ARM - I'm out of ideas please help

Hi everybody,

I'm having problems with configuring ecos for ARM E7T.
I tried so many ways, searched the maillist but no help.
Any ideas greatly appreciated...

I am using redhat 7.3 with gcc 3.2, latest binutils and newlib.
(could this be the problem? I tested the toolchain for e7t)

Here's what I'd done and the problem:

I got the latest CVS source typing: 

% cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@sources.redhat.com:/cvs/ecos co -P ecos

then tried configuring using both configtool-2.11 with GUI and
ecosconfig by typing:

% ecosconfig1314-linux --srcdir=/opt/ecos/ecos/packages/ new e7t
% ecosconfig1314-linux --srcdir=/opt/ecos/ecos/packages/ check
% ecosconfig1314-linux --srcdir=/opt/ecos/ecos/packages/ tree

everything fine so far.
after this when I type:

% make tests

I get the error:

------------------ecosconfig1314-linux error *latestCVS*---------------

I also tried reverting to the CVS source with latest RHEPL by typing

% cvs update -r last-rhepl -d -P

and doing the same with both configtools, after I type

% make tests

I get the error:

-------------ecosconfig1314-linux *with latest RHEPL*---------------------

Is this because I get the sources incomplete?

I use ecos/packages as the CVSROOT when I update - is this correct?

How do I find out what date's CVS repository I am using?

For example last-rhepl is a tag for a certain cvs source, how do I find out 
mine or others?

Which CVS source did others use for building E7T?

Many thanks for reading this far and helping.
