I don't see anything obvious. It looks like the build is trying to use
the h8300-hitachi-coff-ar which I assume it just built, and it
basically isn't working.
That could be all sorts of things wrong, but the stuff which usually
causes problems on arm are: chars being unsigned by default, structure
packing being different from other arches, and the floating point
format being odd. There are a few details on
http://wiki.debian.org/ArmPort which may provide clues.
I think you need to debug the binary giving errors in order to get a
better idea where the problem might lie.
