There is no "ELDK 4.0 for the LITE5200 board".

This installas ELDK 4.0 for PPC 6xx  processors.  Nothing  less,  but
nothing more either.

Which kernel tree are you using? There is no support for  MPC5200  in
the  DENX  Linux  tree.  Well, some code is there, as there is in the
public 2.6 kernel tree, but it's known to be broken and not supported
by us.

That's not the official way to build images.
