Joel, Kmedri,
   Thanks for the information.  Now I need the path for the base files for the RTMEMS m68k  target?  The Download Helper is not working for me.

The -base portion is the target CPU independent part of the tool
installation.  For example, the documentation for gcc is the same
for all target gcc's.  You have to download a base and a target
specific RPM.  See

which gives the list for a sparc example.

And with a tip of the hat to Ralf, you can also use apt or
yum and greatly simplify the entire job.

Please file a PR on that if you remember it.
