I'm not sure what you are saying here, but you should *never* try and
build within the actual repository.  The build system is simply not
designed that way.

You might also consider using the command line tool, since it is
quite intuitive and simple.  For example, to affect this same build:
  % export ECOS_REPOSITORY=/tmp/ecos/packages
  % mkdir /tmp/edb7312_test
  % cd /tmp/edb7312_test
  % ecosconfig new edb7xxx redboot
  % ecosconfig import ${ECOS_REPOSITORY}/hal/arm/edb7xxx/current/misc/edb7312_redboot_ROMRAM.ecm
  % ecosconfig tree
  % make
... of course, substitute your actual source repository for 
"/tmp/ecos/packages" and your own work directory for "/tmp/edb7312_test"
