Thank you! I was able to use that script to produce a working
toolchain. I had successfully produced toolchains before, but the code
would not execute on device. Just to check, this is actually an
arm-none-eabi toolchain? I looked over the compilation flags and it
looks like it supports all Cortex-M processor features like such a
toolchain should. Most instructions I could find seemed to build a
more restricted toolchain.

I have looked at the supporting blog posts and read the documentation
available. I still do not understand why the specific binutils, gcc,
newlib, and gdb configurations were chosen, and why what is ostensibly
the same configuration failed when I tried it Would you please take
the time to document them, or point me towards a place that describes
what I should be looking for and why? I don't mind reading but I do
not know why the choices made are the correct ones and have been
unable to find anywhere that starts to offer any explanation.

I apologize for requesting that you donate your time, but if you feel
inclined you might want to look at the crossdev project. If I
eventually understand your script, or even if I don't, I may be able
to add better embedded target support (embedded targets are already
supported, but I receive build failures). Unfortunately the developers
of my distribution do not seem to have much of a hardware background
and people seem to expect me to contribute code. I am not smart enough
to do this, sir, and would appreciate whatever help you can offer to
this end.
