I see your point, Ron. I do indeed. However I did some final analysis
on the output that I can either post here, on the Coreboot list if
you're curious, or not and directly to Joe, the explosion of
complaints happens on my Slackware 12.1 system, simply because that
system is running a later version of the PCI libraries.  And the
program builds properly on the other one running Slackware 11.0
because the PCI libraries are older. I am referring to libpci.a here.
According to the lists of installed things, its 2.2.10 for the 12.1

To be honest I really don't know why this is happening:

And not on the Slackware 11.0 system. It is running the 2.2.3 release.
This is why Joe I asked earlier whose distribution you chose and what
not. For all I know the code in question may have been written not by
you, but by that fellow who discovered how to make TV out work on that
board. There's an excellent write up on www.settoplinux.org that goes
into details leading up to the code, and then the location where it

Depending on when I get the hardware here, it might be one, the one I
asked you about earlier even, or the regular participant, the IP1000
one, we'll be able to resolve this sooner.
