All this is still work in progress. The install stuff isn't working and I is 
here for testing only. Hopefully won't be too lonkg now.

changed to use pie && disable profileing.

I had problems generating data although I suspects its because I don't have 
the locals I'm trying to generate. I'll need to work out how locale stuff 
works and add some error checking to the generation. I aim to add the 
locale.txt and codesets.txt to a /etc/embedded config setting too.

Thanks.

Good done.

That was very silly. Thanks for pointing it out.

Great. ;-)
