I think that I've been lucky using a stock RH9 distro.  I'm going to make sure I've got the latest binutils, etc... and retry.

By the way, what is the status on USB support?  I know you were getting close.

Did you use 
export LANG=en_US
before make bin/tg3--filo.zelf?

Or I could send one tg3_filo.zelf to you?

Run ``readelf -h -l'' on the problem image to see what the values
are before it is combined into LinuxBIOS.  I suspect you have a
build problem, possible a messed up version of perl installed.
