I've incorrectly reported a build failure in the support system.
-But I'm posting a copy to this list, in order to follow Victor's advice.
I've suggested a couple of changes, which makes ABE a little more compatible.
Though I can still not build the toolchain on my PowerBook G4, I think that my
two modifications might ease building on Intel based Macs and perhaps other
architectures in addition.
* Use getconf instead of /proc/cpuinfo (you're already using getconf in
* By default use twice as many cores for -jN as usual. (If you have 2 cores,
* Change the architecture from 'Power Macintosh' (which contains an offending
space) to 'powerpc'.

Apart from that, I'd like to report a successful build on Cubieboard2 running
I built for the aarch64 architecture, and I'm currently attempting to build
Armbian for beelink GT1 using the new shiny Linaro toolchain. :)
...and what a pleasure, there's no fan-noise when building on the Cubieboard2!
