The MontaVista CDK is a complete package built for a specific target.
In the case of the 8260, this is hardware floating point, PowerPC 603
instruction scheduling in the utilities and compilers, and the proper
cache line size (which is 32 bytes).  All of the libraries and
applications are built using these tools, and it is highly recommended
you rebuild any applications not provided in the MontaVista CDK
that you may download from other sites rather than just install
generic PowerPC RPMS.
