Hi Ralf, Nicolas,
I was the original author of that page, and I

the FHS and RTEMS convention. My approach to naming
is historical, in that it is how I have been doing
it, and I can't remember how or when I got it

Ralf, I've fixed these errors on the aforementioned
Nicolas, I again apologize for any confusion I have
As to the "OS-independent" assertion, that certainly
_should_ be true. However, I did find some
differences between building on Cygwin and Gentoo
Linux when I started this on Ubuntu. Issues such as
the texinfo, broken C compiler, and installation of
the BSP seemed interesting enough that others could
benefit from a wiki page. I fixed the C compiler
myself, but the other two issues I got help from the
mailing list. In the interest of helping others who
might encounter the same issues, I wrote the wiki

It's cluttered with bugs
