uclinux compilation error

I'm trying to cross-compile uclinux using a toolchain provided by the hardarware manufacturer.

When I run the

command, I get an error that I cannot understand:

yannick@ubuntu:~/uclinux-dist$ make

Thanks !!


The value of your path when you run make is not necessarily what it is when your command executes. I would place an echo $PATH in the actual makefile just before you attempt to compile the source file.

That will at least give an indication as to whether something is changing your path during the build process.
