Producing Embedded Controller using RealTime Workshop

Hi,
I getting seriously stuck trying to understand Real Time Workshop.
For a project at university, I am trying to move our MATLAB/Simulink based control algorithms onto on-board processors, namely Gumstix Overo COM's. They run a version of command line Linux and are not suited to running the Simulink models within the Matlab Environment.
Currently we are having to manually translate our Simulink models into C++ code, but I understand it is possible to produce C++ source code directly from within Simulink using the RTW.
I have succeeded in doing this, but the generated source code won't compile using g++ or the 'make' command once the files are on the Overo COM's. The only thing I can reliably produce at the moment is a *.exe which isn't suitable for the target system.
I'm sure there is something really fundamental that I'm doing wrong, but I can't seem to find a good guide or help file to describe exactly how to do what I'm trying to do.
Host Environment: Windows x64 Laptop
Target Environment: Gumstix Overo Fire (Linux & ARM Cortex-A8 OMAP3530 Processor)
Thanks in Advance.

Did you make sure that you have transported all files for building on another target? See Relocating Code to Another Development Environment

I too have a linking error for rt_StartDataLoggingWithStartTime, rt_UpdateTXYLogVars. Please tell us what library contains them. I actually need to compile this for ARM, so if I would prefer access to the source code.
