Question.  What did you use for your site.def/host.def?  

I added this:
#define LinuxDistribution LinuxUnknown

Got this after the Imake boot straped itself:

Building on Linux 2.2.14 mips [ELF] (2.2.14).

Linux Distribution: Unknown
libc version: 6.0.6
binutils version: 2.9

It more or less ran through to completion.  After installing the libs and
some aps, updating the path, ldconfig, etc...  I cannot run any
of the /usr/X11R6/bin utilities.  They all bus error, which sounds like a
data alignment issue or library problem.  (I really don't care about the X
server build, I just want the LIBRARIES.)

ldd shows apparently successful library resolution and the magic numbers
on the files show proper endianness, CPU target type, etc...

I'm using the Simple Linux 0.1 distro as the base.

My questions are:

#1 Is there more to the configuration than this?

#2 I downloaded the 4.0.1 src tarballs (3 of them), should those include
your patches already, or do I need to get and add those before I can build
