Bad things happened... Please don't do that but instead, use
the config item "Use cross-compiler to build Kernel" you can
find somewhere. Then do a "make boot".

fbcon.c and newport_con.c both include data for the penguin. Bad.

Looking at COnfig.in's, please try to answer "No" to
"Support for frame buffer devices (EXPERIMENTAL)". I don't know
if this helps, but for now it seems to be the one and only way
to net get fbcon.o compiled in. But maybe I'm just aiming at my
foot...
