You need gcc 4.4 to get EABI working on ARMv4 and there are additional patches
to gcc on top of gcc 4.4 see
gcc-armv4-pass-fix-v4bx-to-ld.patch for gcc in OE. So as Koen suggested earlier
if you try with OE compiler you might have better chance of getting it
to work as many
OE devs have tried it.
btw. are you passing march=armv4 to the compiler when doing the compile ?
