I found out the problem I was experiencing was with the $PATH variable. It did not contain the path to my sparc compiler. I would think OpenBIOS would report a missing compiler with a direct message about the issue. Instead it displayed a message that kind of confused me. This:
ERROR: no sparc sparc64 cross-compiler found !
It didn't make sense to me because I was trying to build the 32-bit sparc binary using this command-line:
CROSS_COMPILE=sparc-elf- ./config/scripts/switch-arch sparc32
After fixing the $PATH variable I was able to make the binary.
Maybe this message could be fixed by adding a slash:
ERROR: no sparc/sparc64 cross-compiler found!
