Thanks Steve, I'll give it a look.

I could give you my sdk wink, wink ... if you want a shiny (well, it's
a bit dated, but hey, it is a LTS release) NXP iMX8MM toolchain.

I started by trying to update my trace-cmd yocto recipe to just pull
the latest but it ran into not finding the include files too so that's
what led me to just trying to build it outside Yocto manually to
understand how to build it.
