build rtems

Is there anyway to confirm that? From my understanding on the 
steps described in the "getting started with RTEMS for C/C++ users" 
documentation, I'm confident that those tools have been built successfully. 

I have no idea what else to check. :(

Thanks alot.

I *think* you either haven't buillt the necessary tools yet (ie
rtems-binutilities, rtems-gcc, etc)
or they are not present within your PATH.

Hi all;

Can anyone help me on this, i'm lost.
I got these messages while building the rtems4.5.0 using the bit script.
