On step 4, configuring the build tree, I selected my target architecture and platform and left the Building options as they were. This make failed with the error "no suitable compiler found". This message appeared to come from the script .arm-linux-SCRIPT which looks in various places for an arm gcc compiler. No seeing instructions on tools to be installed, I decided to create a directory of links to the tools from Genode which I had previously installed. That directory of links was added to PATH. So, for example, the link to arm-linux-gcc points to /usr/local/genode-gcc/bin/genode-arm-gcc. Step 4 now completed and the make in step ran until the error with the static library references occurred.

Mentor Graphic's CodeBench Lite Edition  is known to work. Just extract the archive to /usr/local/gcc and adapt the path in the .arm-linux-SCRIPT accordingly.
