Is this configuration intended for cross-building? Have you used it for building native as well?

The EPICS build system was designed so that end-users should never have to modify any CONFIG.* files to build Base, they should only edit CONFIG_SITE.* files, so your SDK_TARGET value should get in a CONFIG_SITE.* file. If this configuration is used for cross-building only then it really belongs in a CONFIG_SITE.<host-arch>.raspbian-arm file, the CONFIG.Common.<target-arch> files are for things that really are specific to the target irrespective of where the code is being compiled.

I have asked Pete Jemian who has lots of experience with running EPICS on the Pi for his comments too.
