compile_et and asn1_compile are both "host tools".  i.e., they need to
be linked against the host's libraries, not the target's libraries.
Linking them against ${DESTDIR} libraries is not the right answer.

At the moment, a bunch of the host tools, including these, are not
written particularly portably (i.e., they use functions which aren't
in POSIX, like strl*).  This will hopefully be corrected in some way
or another..

   Also, I get complaints like
   Unknown modifier 'O'
   Unknown modifier '@'
   although I built make first, and am using it.

Are you sure the make sources you're using are up to date?
