In general, there is no need to modify the .cdl files in the field.
The way that you control a configuration is  by using one of these:
  * the GUI ConfigTool
  * hand-editing the "ecos.ecc" database in your build directory
  * using .ecm scripts to manipulate data items
I normally use a combination of the last two.

For example, to build a version of RedBoot on a platform that needs some
tweaks/setup, one would follow these steps:
  % ecosconfig new target redboot
  % ecosconfig import target_special.ecm
  % ecosconfig tree
The 'import' step modifies the "ecos.ecc" database in place.  The 'tree'
step generates all of the files (Makefiles, headers, etc) for the build.
You could also:
  % edit ecos.ecc
  ... fiddle with some parameters
  % ecosconfig tree
