thanks. I have compiled the libgmp. Now i try to compile the program
which needs to port. Anything goes ok, but at the end of linking, an
error occurred.

unrecognised emulation mode: swp-byte-writes
Supported emulations: armelf
make[2]: *** [build] Error 1

I'm using the "make xsh" cross compiling shell in the dslinux
directory. I don't quite understand what "unrecognised emulation mode:
swp-byte-writes" means. Can someone give me a help?

Best Regards.
