Could you be bit more specific? I'm not sure I understand what you mean.
I was convinced that this was dealt with automatically by egcs64.

All the compilation lines output during the kernel build start with
something like
sparc64-linux-gcc -D_KERNEL....

When I look for the egcs64 compiler binary I find a chain of symlinks,
but there is nothing wrong in that, I presume:

sol:~# ls -l /usr/bin/sparc64-linux-gcc
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           35 Jun  4 17:35
/usr/bin/sparc64-linux-gcc -> /etc/alternatives/sparc64-linux-gcc
sol:~# ls -l /etc/alternatives/sparc64-linux-gcc
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           33 Jun  4 17:51
/etc/alternatives/sparc64-linux-gcc -> /usr/bin/sparc64-linux-gcc.egcs64
sol:~# ls -l /usr/bin/sparc64-linux-gcc.egcs64
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        74944 Jan  4  2001

As I said I load the /boot/config-2.4.18 as the config file. I assume
that this was the one used making the Debian stock kernel. That's why I
am pretty frustrated here: why doesn't it work for *me*?

Thank you for your answer. I hope you will specify what you mean by your
first comment.

Best regards,
