Did you add the VGA options (CONFIG_CONSOLE_VGA=1,CONFIG_PCI_ROM_RUN=1)
to Config.lb before the buildtarget? This is crucial to making the
issue exhibit itself -- without these options, it compiles cleanly for
me, as well. After adding them, a "cleaned" target dir has linking
errors, whereas a "dirty" target dir (make was run without these
options) will compile cleanly.
