This is likely a stupid problem with my installation....but I can't see it yet.

bit ran to completion building the tools.

Shortly after starting bit_rtems, I got 'cannot create executables'.  From the log:

../rtems-4.5.0-beta3/configure --target=powerpc-rtems --prefix=/export/home/det/tools/cross/gcc-2.95.2-newlib-1.8.2-rtems-4.5.0-beta3 --disable-hwapi --disable-multiprocessing --enable-cxx --enable-rdbg --enable-tests --enable-networking --enable-posix --disable-itron

Could not successfully configure into build-powerpc-rtems!

This is all with the fresh new 4.5.0beta3 sources building under SunOS5.6.

Any help appreciated.
