I am not a compiler guy, so I am trying to
figure out what you mean by 'raw'.
Is it necessary to get this 'stuff' which
configure something to compile and run an
eCos target? In which case I cannot compile
the eCos library without this patch and with 
another more recent compiler? Unless this is already in 2.95.3 as well, please confirm.

Based on previous e-mails I understood however 
it shall be possible to compile some generic 
object files for both Linux and eCos with same 
compiler (e.g: 2.95.3), thanks all.
