Canon A720IS compilation for linux

I had made the cross compiler as per the information specified in the chdk wiki. But when I downloaded the chdk svn and tried to look at the makefile.inc, there was no information regarding a720is. I could change the variable called "PLATFORM" to a720is. But I am confused with the variable "PLATFORMSUB". Can anyone help me what is the PLATFORMSUB for the a720is model.

The PLATFORMSUB variable is the firmware version (here is explained how to know it for your camera: FAQ - CHDK Wiki).

However you should not ADD new variables in makefile.inc, because if it's not there it means that CHDK hasn't been ported to this platform. But A720 and A720IS seems to be the same, so try with PLATFORM=a720 which is in makefile.inc, check your firmware version and hope it is PLATFORMSUB=100c...

EDIT: And please don't post the same question at different places in the forum... (continue the original thread if you want more precisions)
