It does make sense. I'll examine the makefile for the for the primary
system and pass the changes along to the secondary while I am at it.
Thank you Carl-Daniel.

As for why I am interested in these systems, it turns out they are
perfect for displaying digital data directly. I'll need to track down
the data on the NB and SB portions of the boards used in the systems,
but I'll cross that bridge when I need to.

Incidentally Joe, it turns out that Intel provides a fairly complete
Linux developers kit for the target inside the Akimbo platform. It's
referenced on the pages belonging to the fellow who helped you with
the TV out issue for the first platform. Such as the page discussing
adding a serial port to the Akimbo platform.
