When I'm cross compiling the Busybox-0.6.5, for mips-linux
I'm facing problem like...

[root at Linux5 busybox-0.60.5]# make

mips-linux-gcc -Wall -Wshadow -Os -fomit-frame-pointer -D_GNU_SOURCE  -DBB_VER='"0.60.5"' -DBB_BT='"2003.10.20-14:58+0000"' -I /home/kp/cogent/linux/include -I /usr/include -DUSE_SYSTEM_PWD_GRP  -Ilibbb -c libbb/interface.c -o libbb/interface.o
libbb/interface.c:1628: redefinition of 'ether_hwtype' breaks section-relative computations
make: *** [libbb/interface.o] Error 1

What could be the mistake,

Thanks in advance
