this is for gcc
../gcc-4.0.0/configure --target=arm-rtems --with-gnu-as --with-gnu-ld
--with-newlib --verbose --enable-threads --enable-languages="c,c++"
--prefix=/opt/rtems-4.7 --disable-multilib --disable-interwork

and this is for rtems
../rtems/configure --target=arm-rtems --disable-posix
--disable-networking --disable-cxx --disable-itron --disable-rdbg
--enable-rtemsbsp=gp32 --prefix=/opt/rtems-4.7

and here the full error
gmake[3]: Entering directory `/tmp/b-rtems/arm-rtems/c/gp32/librdbg'
