I'm getting an out of memory error while trying to build the tests for an
board. Looking through the archive I saw a mention of the it but not a fix.
I know  have to cut down the test code because the Atmel board is short of
SRAM but am not show exactly how or what to reduce. Any one have an idea?

install/arm-elf/bin/ld: address 0x209664c
section .bss is not within region ram

I installed ecos 1.3.1 with cygwin. Does it on both a cygwin 98se and NT
set ups. Upgraded the Configtool and Ecosconfig to the latest. Grabbed
the source tree as of Jan 14th. Selected Clean, build library, this went
Building the Tests result in the over allocation of memory as seen above and

I build the GNU tools per Bill Gatliff's instructions using:
gcc 2.95.3
binutils 2.11.2
newlib 1.9.0
insight 5.1

for arm-elf.
