Is your test for a powerpc target?

The problem isn't in the apps that I'm using, the reference to 
__libc_stack_end is in libgcc.  I don't have the code in front of me, but 
it comes from a macro expansion in the config/rs6000 stuff.

The first failure I get is when buildroot is compiling/linking ldd.

Thanks for the reply,
