Hi Andrew,

The examples located in testsuites are intended to be compiled with
RTEMS and will not work by copying them elsewhere. For compiling an
application, you should have a look at the examples-v2.git repository
[1]. That should have more info about using RTEMS_MAKEFILE_PATH, and
also has a newer approach to compiling applications for RTEMS that
uses the Waf build system. I highly recommend checking out the
waf-based approach to compiling applications as it has some great
features, albeit at a slight learning curve.
