Almost. That is instructions for remaking the ELDK packages
from the src.rpms. But I want to take the existing binary
rpms and install them on my owh root. This does *not* work:

   ppc_4xx-rpm --root=/mnt/flash foo.ppc.rpm

I want to do something like that with the packages, so that
I can install individual existing ppc.rpm packages from the
ELDK disk onyl by flash card.
