Thanks, that did the trick!

What I feel about xpcc, especially about its build system and
SystemClock, is that it's black magic, and that only the few of you
knows what's going on inside, and the rest of us can't do anything
about it. Now I'm getting used to the codebase, but it's still
difficult sometimes to find what I want.
What I think would really help is an overview documentation of:
  1) the build process (how to add new targets, etc.)
  2) the basic architecture of the system components/drivers

I know you don't have all the time in the world, these are just my
thoughts on making xpcc the best library for mcu programming :)

Also, since I'm writing software for a device that will eventually be
sold, I was wondering how hard would it be to port the current (i.e.
not system_clock branch) version of xpcc to the f103? I don't feel too
good relying on an experimental branch (also, running from external
crystal doesn't work currently).
