I believe that the "triplet" is such that linux-gnueabi is a single tuple (not 2 as the dash '-' would imply.)

My builds copied from my boostraped from codesourcery is:


Building as arm-linux-gnueabi barfs that you need a triple.

arm-slackware-linux-gnueabi is the correct answer.

Like in the ancient days before the new glibc that toolchain was -- i386-slackware-linux-gnuaout (that would be slackware from sometime in 1995!)
