I realize, I should have announced this earlier ... but better late than 
never ;) :

The last rtems-4.10 toolchain update introduced a 2 major changes:

1) Abandoning -qrtems-debug

This change very likely will be permanent.

2) Some targets (arm, i386, m68k, mips, powerpc) have been changed to 
use 64bit "off_t".

=> On these targets, this toolchain is ABI and API incompatible to all 
previous toolchain releases.

For now, this change is considered to be experimental, because the SC 
wants to add support for 64bit file-access and we currently are 
evaluating different approaches.

Please report issues or problems you are facing, ASAP.
