Crosstool-ng setup to compile Linux

Good evening.

I am following the instructions in the “EMbedded Linux Training” from Free Electrons ( to setup my environment to build Beaglboard code. However, I am having difficulty getting the ct-ng toolchain to build properly. Whenever I issue the build command, I receive the following:

wws@wws-HP-Compaq-nc8430-EY685AW-ABA:~/crosstool-ng-1.12.4$ ./ct-ng build
[INFO ] Performing some trivial sanity checks

ANy suggestions as to where to start?
