Hello Daniel

Figured it out meanwhile:
In lines 145 and 148 (building rockbox.ucl), you replaced "echo"
by "@echo". However, this part is not makefile syntax, but shell
syntax, and the shell doesn't know "@echo".

Ah ok. I just wondered because
(1) says:
"Always indent your code with four spaces. Don't use TAB
characters, as that will mess up code display in CVS, printing,
and a zillion other places." and
(2) In some places the indentation indeed does not use TABs, but
multiple spaces.
