How did you build the tools?

The rtems-tools needs to know the version of RTEMS it is to be used 
with. While we have a version number in the name of the tools we need to 
do this.

The error means you have built 4.11 tools and you have a 4.12 version of 
the rtems-tools in your path. We need to see if this is a bug in the set 
up of these tools or related to the procedure you have used.

This is not a good idea. The 4.12 tools may be different to the 4.11 
tools and if you happen to move to 4.12 this change may cause some 
issues and confusion.
