I've tried this several times now, on my 1.5.2 i386 (+ updated make) machine
at home, but the build fails during 'make includes' trying to build
'compile_et' (it complains about {get,set}progname when linking). There is a
compile_et binary in my build tools tree, but it doesn't appear to being

Also (I'm not sure this is related to the new toolchain or not), but 'make
obj' fails if OBJMACHINE is set in addr2line - I think it tries to create a
symlink to '.../addr2line.i386', rather than '.../addr2line'.
