it sounds like you're trying to do the build of open80211s on
the XO itself.  most people don't do development for the XO that way --
we build on another machine, and move the binaries onto the XO.

for simple programs, you can build on most any modern linux
distribution and your binary will work on the XO, because the
libraries and environment tend to be compatible.  (you could
perhaps build a static binary to be sure.)

the XO is based on fedora, so a fedora machine will be the best
build host.
