The mpc5xx package provides generic code for the mpc5xx processor
family. In addition to that you need code specific to your board. eg
look at the cme555 and ec555 packages. These contain the
redboot_RAM.ecm files for that specific board.

You need to first port eCos to your specific board. I don't know the
PPC families, but maybe you can use either the ec555 or the cme555 as
a starting point.
