Yes the helper script build_bsp has "--enable-tests=samples"

You've lost me here.
The VM has no examples-v2.
Is that something I should separately download?

Also, I've never used waf, is that included on the VM image,
or will I need to install it separately?

What about building the code in
b-sis/sparc-rtems4.11/c/sis/testsuites/samples or

I tried running 'make all' in those directories,
but got 'cannot find -lrtemsbsp'.

When was this library supposed to be created?
I couldn't find it anywhere.
Maybe my bootstrap did have some problems that I didn't see.
What is the best way to verify the environment and tools?

Thanks again for your help,
