It's done of course, I look at genshX and mbx8xx BSPs.

It's what I want to do at beginning but I still not
found own can
I link the --enable-xxxx with my option constant.

Example :


#define constant I want is CONSOLE_ENABLE

how can I say to configure to use --enable-console
option to defined

Now I am test another solution to define BSP option in
fact like mbx8xx BSP.

I am now two bsp name with one bsp source tree
I have boardbso and boardbsp_nocons and I use
to define CONSOLE_ENABLE if bsp name have _nocons in

But I still not understand how to use --enable-xxxxx.
:-( May be I am
stupid...... :-)

For linkcmds, I have done what you say, one source
tree two linkcmds with
one linkcmds
for default. In fact is only to integrate my bsp
firmware (fbug) or not, so
I had to
configure different memory map (little bigger without
fbug) and to
initialise VBR and
the initial stack (that will not be in my firmware ram
map if absent). Right
now that
seems to work (I talk about selection of linkcmds
with -qnolinkcmds -TWHATIWANT).

Thanks a lot
