Hi Chris,

What you're doing is probably incorrect unless the nm is supposed to be
running against host architecture object files.

Normally I'd expect nm to be spoofed (e.g. intercepted to call the
arch-linux-nm version so it can munge (technical word) the object files
correctly for the target architecture.

If you could send some output from a failing build it may throw some
light on the issue.

Regards, Stuart
