Re: 2.1.37 trampoline.S still fails. What gives?

with the help of Wolfgang Wander, I have learned what my problem was
that caused trampoline.S to not assemble.

The WRONG versions of the binutils were in /usr/bin, with symlinks in
/usr/i486-linux/bin (as, ld, nm, etc). The correct versions were not
installed via 'make install' in the binutils directory, and I hadn't
checked (well) enough to notice it.

So, with the binutils- stuff properly in place, I can build a
workable kernel (it boots and runs...) although I don't have any SMP
system, just a SMP kernel.
