+If you already have a devkitARM-based toolchain installed, you

 The build will want to download a couple of files (about 30MB total).
 If you want to get the files now and build the toolchain later, run:

 To clean out files left over after the build, run:
         make clean
 To remove *everything* INCLUDING THE INSTALLED TOOLCHAIN, run:

 If there is an error during the build, please try to paste at least
-50 lines above the "make: Error 1" line into your problem report.

 Otherwise no one will be able to figure out the error.
 Once the error is fixed (by you or someone else), run make again,
 including the PREFIX if you specified one. The build will continue
 from where it failed.
 To use the toolchain, run this command to put the toolchain
 binaries in your PATH, assuming you are using the default prefix,
 and assuming your dslinux source tree resides in ~/dslinux:
         export PATH=~/dslinux/toolchain/prefix/bin:$PATH
 Currently, you also have to make a small modification to the
 file vendors/config/armnommu/config.arch to be able to use
 the toolchain. Find the line that says:
