I have been trying to use ipkg to install the necessary packages for native compilation on the Gumstix, but I have not had much success. I have searched the packages generated from 'ipkg list' and have not found a generic 'build-essential' type package, so I've tried installing most of the packages related to gcc and libc, but still have errors from the linker reporting messages like:

/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcc_s

Can anyone point me to a list of packages needed for a build system, or a relevant tutorial?

Thanks for any help,
