First, I want to thank Ralf and Joel for their email.

Yes, you are right. config.sub is already modified to support dsp16k-rtems.

Here it is. gcc-target-default.cfg file we found yesterday. It has CPPFLAGS
variable and it has the following:
CPPFLAGS += -nostdinc \
This was the include files I was looking for. I need to find out a way
to able to set last three (GCC_INCLUDE, RTEMS_LIBC_DIR, RTEMS_LIBC_DIR)
include directories correctly by using configure command.

This is done. Thanks anyway.

Thanks, I will do that.

Sure. It helped. Thanks a lot.
