Thanks for the link. However, you are saying that it is a different
toolchain based on GCC. I did not understand this sentence correctly.
Actually, I want to compile the sources using arm-elf-gcc command. Is
this supported by this codesourcery tool? If you have already used,
please let me know.

Thanks and Regards,
