Library upgrades?

I've finally got X up and running, and an ELF kernel built, but along the
way, I did some other library, compiler and package upgrades, and I'm
having some troubles, perhaps someone here could point me in the right
direction?

First of all, when compiling a new kernel, if I try to boot, MILO tells
me that the magic number isn't valid. Grepping through files, I find the
magic number I'm giving to be valid for COFF binaries from an Alpha, is
this a problem with my gcc, or is there something I just need to install
or rebuild?

Secondly, ldconfig doesn't seem to honor my passing it library names.
I've set the environment variables to get X running, but I'd really like
the X libraries in my ld.so.cache, I installed the latest ldconfig from
RedHat, is there something I'm missing?

Lastly, (and the reason I'm trying to build a new kernel), I get
unreachable errors trying to ping 127.0.0.1 or the IP address of my
Alpha. TCP/IP works for most everything else, so I think it may be a
problem with my loopback port (I want to make sure I have a kernel with
all the experimental loopback stuff disabled).

Any help at all would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Paul
