Well I finally got my arm world built.  It took replacing the x86 box I
was trying to build on with one that did not have hardware issues and
could stay up through the build process.

There seem to be some small glitches, like the network does not like to
work at 10baseT and it hiccups at 100baseTX, but I am running so now it
is time to really start playing with it!  Tomorrow will see me putting
some USB storage on the device and building some ports.

I should have retired that old crashing 450 Mhz P2 much sooner and
gotten the arm cross build finished weeks ago!
