Assembly startup codes for ECX compiler in VAsm?

I'm in the process of starting a new fork of ECX, the AmigaE compiler for PPC and 68020+. I've run into a snag. The startup codes are bootstrapped in Assembly and I don't know what the settings should be for MorphOS and OS4 on VAsm.

I've already gotten the PAsm PPC sources massaged into VAsmPPC format and the AsmOne sources massaged into VAsm68k. What settings do I need to get the right object file formats? I know OS4 uses an ELF derivative. I think MorphOS does too for that matter. Yet the startup codes are different for OS4 and MorphOS.

@Templario

They convert PPC Assembly code to object files. Assembly is one step up from the raw binary.

Thanks! Yes it does! The tutorial even uses VAsm!
