Hi Randy,

I am also trying to build it on 13.04/64bit (specially because 13.04 has
"creduce" on apt-get). I think bison should be on this list too. As soon as
we get it work we should add an entry for 13.04 on the wiki as you said.

I think we need to recheck the build-dep target to address this issues. You
are not the first one I see that have problems with libfdt-dev.

Best regards,
