Hi Laurent,

sorry for the late reply but I didn't had much time for testing stuff

Following tests where done after trying to compile the skalibs package
in opensde after updating it from 1.3.0 to 1.4.2, cross-compiling for
x86 on a x86-64 build host, which still fails.

cat conf-compile/conf-cc

cat conf-compile/conf-dynld

cat conf-compile/conf-ld

no error at all while calling ./compile trysizeofushort.c

no error at all as well. the executable seems to be created properly.

But what I do not get is why it is failing to generate the header even
if the above calls are working.
