Hello list,

I'm trying to crosscompile openSSL to PPC8xx. I've downloaded the latest 
version and when I call "make" I get the following error:

ppc_8xx-gcc -I.. -I../.. -I../../include -DOPENSSL_THREADS -D_REENTRANT 
linux_ppc32.o linux_ppc32.s
linux_ppc32.s: Assembler messages:
linux_ppc32.s:109: Error: Unknown pseudo-op:  `.machine'
make[3]: *** [linux_ppc32.o] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/rtafas/voip_devel/openssl-0.9.8/crypto/bn'
make[2]: *** [subdirs] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/rtafas/voip_devel/openssl-0.9.8/crypto'
make[1]: *** [build_crypto] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/rtafas/voip_devel/openssl-0.9.8'
make: *** [top] Error 2

Before that:
I make a "./Configure linux-ppc" and edited the makefile to cross 
compile it and to force it to use ppc-8xx_gcc and ppc_8xx-ar.

Any idea to solve this?
Any "how to" to compile Openssl in embedded enviroment?
