I don't see e2factory playing games with PATH in the makefiles.  Can
you execute markdown in the shell you run make in?  If make can not
find it, the shell shouldn't be able to find it either, no?

The build instructions are in the INSTALL file in the source
directory.  What I do and what works here:

	download all the sources, unpack e2factory and put
	the lua tarball in the toplevel source directory

	make all

	make install

make all should compile the lua runtime + batch compiler and use the
latter to translate the e2 source code.

Could you email me the output of make?  I also notified the developer
and asked if he can re-enact the problems you encounter.  He is also
on Cc now.  Hi Gordon!

That's great, thank you.  Can I push to it as well?  Then we could
have all 'linux on xtensa' related development in one place.

There are two versions of this board, the s6105 and the s6106.  Which
one do you have?  We have the s6105 but they differ only in the
peripherals AFAIK so the patches you have from us until now should
work on both.
