ok, it sounded like it needs to be done, just wanted a confirmation from the people in the know
btw, i got my package(s) from uClinux-dist tarball (quite a download) and that's where my toolchain comes from

i'll give the "buildroot" a go just because my experience with this is rather thin, but long term i wouldn't mind knowing what is happening behind the scene; would anyone be able to suggest recommended readings about this aspect?

thanks to everyone for their responses
