Here are a couple of other build issues I'm running into.
the buildroot currently passes a -m option to grep. This option is
available in grep 2.5 but not in grep 2.4.2 (which happens to be the
one on my system).
buildroot comes with 4.0.8 version of sed, but it seems to execute
/bin/sed (which in my case is version 3.02).
If I rearrange my path, then the sed portion seems to work fine. But
shouldn't buildroot do this?
Perhaps the top level makefile should check versions on sed/grep and
error out early with an appropriate error message?
yeah yeah - my linux version is old - It's Mandrake 8.1.
I'm switching over to the coLinux thing, but I thought you might like
to know about the other problems with older software.
