IS this the build process?

library files (which have the low-level interface to the hardware)
the OS & user created C code
this C code is converted into object code
there is some program (WHERE???) that converts the object code into Hitachi
SH-1 machine code

this binary machine code is what is in the firmware right? which program
converst the object code into this machine code?

thanks guys!
