I am using linux- version for both mpc83xx and mpc85xx processors.
This version of kernel supports kexec for both 83xx and 85xx processors.
I have been using ELDK toolchain for PowerPC processors.
I am using u-boot as boot loader and uImage & dtb images as Linux images.

I have downloaded 2.0.2-rc1 package and tried to compile for mpc83xx.
I have used following command to configure kexec-tools for ppc.
./configure --prefix=/home/krishna/work/kexec-tools-6dd624d/
CC=/opt/ELDK41/usr/bin/ppc_6xx-gcc LD=/opt/ELDK41/usr/bin/ppc_6xx-ld
BUILD_CC=/usr/bin/gcc --target=ppc --host=i686

The compilation was broken for PPC.

If the above configuration was wrong, please help me to configure the
package for ppc.

Thanks in advance.
