Re: Specifying target for powerpc/AMX RTOS platform to build GCC cross compiler

Thank you Ian :-) I understood --target=powerpc-eabi is appropriate and no
headers are required for newlib. I could build the crosstool chain with
newlib. Thanks again for giving detailed explanation for queries. :-) Atlast
I built the cross toolchain for powerpc target :-)
