Thanks, I've now gotten binutils and gcc up and running for arm-elf
and I've built the Sansa e200 simulator and it seems to work (or at
least boot up - didn't have much time to test last night). I wasn't
able to get gcc 4.0.3 or 4.0.4 compiled on my Fedora 8 system due to
some bugs in gcc 4.0.x that are tickled by gcc 4.1.2:

    In function 'open',
        inlined from 'collect_execute' at ../../gcc-4.0.4/gcc/collect2.c:1580:
    /usr/include/bits/fcntl2.h:51: error: call to
'__open_missing_mode' declared with attribute error: open with O_CREAT
in second argument needs 3 arguments

The cross-compiler pages on the wiki say that gcc 4.1.0 isn't able to
produce correct builds, is this still the case with 4.1.2. Has anyone
tried 4.2.x or snapshots of what will become 4.3.x? I don't have any
real hardware that is currently supported by Rockbox to test on.
