Thks Jeff,

I tried to configure
../../../newlib-1.15.0/configure --target=arm-elf --prefix=$MYPREFIX \
--enable-interwork --enable-multilib --with-float=soft \
--disable-newlib-supplied-syscalls \
--enable-newlib-reent-small \
but --enable-newlib-reent-small is not recognized.
Have I to use 1.16.x instead of 1.15.0?

There is, also, a configure parameter for "SMALL_MEMORY" ?
