The OP has provided some clues in previous articles.

e.g. in 2c03f8a3-ebc9-4f45-a7de-75b843554e23 at googlegroups.com he
mentions installing ntp-dev_4.2.6p3-r1.6_armv5te.ipk. This file can only
be found on-line at:


This is from the Angstrom distribution (http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/)

According to Wikipedia: 

"The Angstrom distribution is a Linux distribution for a variety of
embedded devices. The distribution is the result of a unification of
developers from the OpenZaurus, OpenEmbedded, and OpenSIMpad projects.
Amongst other options the user interface in one of the reference builds
achieveable with BitBake is the GPE Palmtop Environment.

Angstrom uses opkg for package management."

(More at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%85ngstr%C3%B6m_distribution)

The feed URL referenced above suggests that the OP's architecture is ARM.
And ca8a8da9-9082-436a-ad61-8ce62e14758d at googlegroups.com shows the OP's
cross-compile command-line with --target=arm.
