Thank you all for your help. "no eCOS kernel at all" That was the point.  
Somehow, the configuration I was working with was broken. This went  
unnoticed, because I run config with the -i option, because my system uses  
a 25 MHz crystal and this was considered illegal sometimes earlier (but  
now is perfectly ok according to the data sheet). Anyway, I got tired  
looking at the ever same error message about this quarz - and stopped  
looking at the output. And voilà - it caught me!
Again - thanks for all your help.
