Ooops - if it bombs it's a bug. I never had this problem yet. For building
Milo I also only specify the target format.

No changes since our last conversion about this topic. I'm waiting to
receive an updated set of patches from him.

I'm using the ELF -> ECOFF converter from Ted Lemon's elfutils.tar.gz with
some modifications that make them compile on non-NetBSD systems, too. The
portability patches aren't perfect though. I don't have my hacked version
at hand so I'll put the original archive in the misc/ directory.
I should note that I only need the converter for PIC code executables.
And PIC code again is only required for Milo/Pandora with the SNI firmware.
A weird imagination is most useful to gain full advantage
of all the features - manpage of amd(8).
