I am also attaching logs of build I have that are succeeding to help
you.Furthermore I run the builds in two steps listed below using
compilers for
Ubuntu 14.04 and Fedora 20 turned into dpkgs to work with Debian
distros.Below are the steps.
1. make ARCH=x y_defconfig
2.ARCH= x CROSS_COMPILE=z make -j 8 2> error_file
x = cpu architecture I am building
y=configuration I am building
z= gcc I am builds this architecture
error_file = file I am tracing errors and warnings to send if build
fails to maintainers of that architecture
If you have any other questions please ask me.
Cheers Nick
