I tried this:
and got this error msg:
/home/aishome/maierd/nao/ctc-academics-1.6.0/cross/geode/bin/../lib/gcc/i586-linux/4.3.3/../../../../i586-linux/bin/ld: crt1.o: No such file: No such file or directory

I straced the above call and it looks like gcc(or rather ld) is not checking for crt1.o at the provided library location ($GEODE_LIB).
Same happens in the configure script although I set  CPPFLAGS and
LDFLAGS correctly.
/home/aishome/maierd/nao/ctc-academics-1.6.0/cross/geode/bin/i586-linux-gcc -march=geode -I/home/aishome/maierd/nao/ctc-academics-1.6.0/staging/geode-linux/usr//include -L/home/aishome/maierd/nao/ctc-academics-1.6.0/staging/geode-linux/usr//lib conftest.c  >&5

Any ideas?
