I see the error now.  That is how I know it exists.

I just did a build of the old digitalligic code.  From the end of the make:
./romcc ......
raminit.c:133.8: warning:  RAM_MRS -- using BROKEN hard-wired CAS 2.0. FIX ME SOON
unknown token
make[1]: *** [] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/eric/projects/linuxbios/checkin/abuild/linuxbios-builds/digitallogic_adl855pc/normal'
make: *** [normal/linuxbios.rom] Error 1

It does say "unknown token" in there.  But just a cut and paste of the failure
would have been nice.
