Tanks, I'll look what Mokomakefile provides and how it's used. I'm trying to 
compile qtopiagps to learn how to crosscompile software for Qtopia. Then I 
would want to create ipk/opk package with qtopiagps and create an icon in 
applications menu. But I have to learn all that first.

Then I could help to improve qtopiagps with some GPS control (power 
on/cold/warm/hot reset etc.). I would really invite compact GPS application 
with tangogps and agpsui funcionality for Qtopia so I can try to implement 
map display, download and tracking support too (steeling part of tangogps 
code :-)).
