Sigh.  It looked promising, but...

$ make menuconfig
Checking 'working-make'... ok.
Checking 'case-sensitive-fs'... failed.
Checking 'getopt'... ok.

Build dependency: OpenWrt can only be built on a case-sensitive filesystem
...

It will probably be easier for me to get some random cheap PC running
Ubuntu than to get a non-case-sensitive filesystem working on an
existing XP platform.

Any recommendations on cross tool packages for X86/X86-64 Ubuntu
installations?  Or would splicing the linux-mips.org kernel tree under
the OpenWrt structure - but under Linux this time - still be the
shortest path?

            Regards, and thanks,
