Replying to myself:

If you use binutils older than 2.15 [1] and most preferably gcc 3.3.1 [2], you
should be able to build your own rombox from CVS if you just apply my little
patch. You'll need the modified uclpack sources that support --none [3].


[1] = sh-elf-ld from binutils 2.15 doesn't like the current firmware/
       file for linking. Linus did a fix for the before for this very
       same case so I'm hoping he can join in and help us here!

[2] = Jens' tests have proved this particular version to generate the smallest
       output and thus most suitable for Rombox.

[3] = Jörg's fixed version (based on the uclpack from ucl-1.01) is available

I'm interested in feedback.
