   I am trying to build a toolchain and root file system using buildroot. 
The build did not complete and gave an error. I am new to Linux so I am no 
good at finding out what the errors mean and I googled for an explanation 
and found nothing.
Here is the output of the build:

  I would appreciate any advice you could give me.
