Just curious... does Oz law recognise skates as a roadworthy vehicle? If so, I'm impressed!

Happily, no cars tried to kill me on my way in to work this morning (cycling on Sunnyvale's Lawrence Expressway, which is much like a New Zealand motorway, only with more lanes). It may be a better than average week on that statistic.

prc-tools continues to go way too slowly, due mainly to my having to spend a lot of time doing things for which I get paid.
Er, possibly also because its maintainer hasn't been getting back to you about any of your problems. Sorry about that.
I've hacked around the binutils issue by reverting to a base code segment address of 0x1000 instead of 0x0.
Yeah -- the warning you were getting was new in binutils 2.10, which is why I wasn't getting it before. You could disable it by adding --no-check-sections to the spec file.
This will probably break other things horribly,
Yup. But it's possible that the section base arrangement will have to change like this anyway to support the debugger, and there's another nasty bug that's related too.
