I appreciate your prompt response nitram! I would like to test drive the compilation you've done if you wouldn't mind sending me a link. Thanks!

Are the EXPORT flags commands to be typed into the console or entered into a config file?They can be entered at the command line if you wish.
Can't I just compile with gcc and set flags on the command line?Yes.
If so, do I still need to make, and how?No.
Is /tmp the assumed compilation folder?It often is used for compilation, but you could use a subdirectory under /home/tc.
In “mkdir -p /tmp/package/usr/local/tce.installed”, is tce-installed an assumed name for something?No, that's the actual name of the subdirectory. If your package requires a startup script, place it in that subdirectory.
The compiletc extension is deprecated.No, that's what the build package is called under X86. Under PI it was named compile-essentials.
Should I add a version number to the executable/package?Version information should be listed in the .info file and be accessible by the program itself.
