This is not as easy as I thought it might be. Let me explain ...

The config.ini file hides some important detail the RSB needs. The RSB currently names the package as:


The target and BSP are in the build config file and a config file could build a mix of architectures breaking this naming.

The simplest approach is to take the arguments provided to the RSB and create a config.ini file but this would be limiting where complex BSP options are needed.

I could check if the --with-rtems-bspopts option is a path and that could be a list of specific BSP options appended into the BSP specific area.

Should the following options print a depreciate warning:


I am not sure about --with-rtems-posix. I think it should be removed and POSIX always be enabled.
