There is no need to be root to install the ELDK or ELDK packages.

Also, you should read (and  follow)  the  documentation;  the  manual
explains  in  deatil that you have to use the ELLDK's own RPM-tool to
install  (or  remove)  ELDK   packets.   For   details   please   see

All these are consequences of your wrong commands.

You must use "${CROSS_COMPILE}rpm" instead.

Actually these get installed by default when you install the ELDK:

	-> ppc_8xx-rpm -q krb5-devel krb5-libs
