Hi All,

I am using Ubuntu 11.10 and have to install net-snmp-5.4.3 which uses mipsel-linux libraries from buildroot-micrel toolchain. I haven't worked with toolchains before.

I have the buildroot folder in /opt/buildroot-micrel.

While doing ./configure in net-snmp-5.4.3 am i supposed to specify mipsel-linux as host or target? I would like to know if any other changes must be done.

When I mentioned host as mipsel-linux and endianness as little, ./configure ran well and gave this summary:

Net-SNMP configuration summary:

but make didn't run as expected and gave the following error:

What changes have to be made and what configure options should be tried for installation?
