i tried the following trees:
linux-2.6.15 (from
linux-2.6-denx (from cg-clone<project_name>)
linux-2.6-denx-git (see above)
linuxppc_2_4_mpc5200 (see above)

on the 2.4 kernel i got a different errormessage, but now with the
kernel linux-2.6-mpc52xx.git from Sylvain  everthing seems to work fine,
I need to test it at first. :) But I think this will take now some
time from now.

oh, sry I played with crosscompiling the firt time, it would be a
pleasure for me if you could correct me.
