The RSB process built you the tools for an architecture -- like sparc or 
arm. Now you
have to put those tools at the head of your PATH and build RTEMS for a 
board (e.g. BSP) within that architecture.

So the RSB did not touch RTEMS itself. You do need to configure and 
build it.

If you configured and built RTEMS using configure, make, etc and 
configured with
--enable-tests=samples, the executable was there and has symbolic 
information in it.

I have no idea what you did. If you used a native gcc or tried to 
compile it by hand,
then it didn't work.

Maybe if this didn't help.
