But now I have this problem, and I think it is again configuration...
(as were all my last problems. Just messing with the linkcmds-file to
get the right memory layout and those things)

FREE does not... I found that there are two implementations of this: one
in inlines and one in macros (or at least to the base of this) Can
anyone tell we which is the appropriate for the gen68360 target?
The default is to use the "inline" versions. The "macros" versions
primarily are present to help compilers out which do not supporting
"inline" (Gcc does)

--enable-rtems-inlines to use the "inline" versions (default)
--disable-rtems-inlines to use the "macros" versions.

IMHO, you'd better stay with the inline versions. They are much better
tested than the "macros", because nowadays there is hardly any reason to
use the "macros" versions.

You already have figured out :)

configure --target=m68-rtems --prefix=whatever_you_want


make RTEMS_BSP=gen68360

are supposed to do what you want.

If wanting to try the macros-versions, append --disable-rtems-inlines to
the configure line above.

If actually devoloping on files inside of the source tree, you also
might want to append --enable-maintainer-mode to let the autotools
automatically update autotool-generated files.
