lazy little b... ;)

I've "made" the env.sh and source-d it. The compiler is called and runs 
exactly as supposed to be.

The rest of my problems are within the cpp files itself. Some header 
files are not available. Is it possible to use the -I (for includes) and 
-L (for libs) parameters on the mips-unknown-elf-gcc like on a normal gcc?



PS: should I open a new thread for the parameter question?
