I am well aware of the dangers of incompatible tools. :)

But last time with rockboxdev.sh I tried installing arm-elf and
arm-eabi tools at the same time, and I ended up with compilation
errors partway through the build. Not sure what the cause was,
but in the end I downloaded the gcc/binutils/newlib sources
(from the URLs in rockboxdev.sh, no less!) and built them myself.

Just started running rockboxdev.sh again - this time things are
looking much better. So far. :)
