The mechanism for preparing 3rd-party code has changed since the version
13.11. To install the DDE-Linux code (that includes the USB driver for
the Raspberry Pi), please use the following command:

  <genode-dir/tool/ports/prepare_port dde_linux

To learn more about the way how the integration of 3rd-party code with
Genode works, please have a look at Section 5.2. "Integration of
3rd-party software" in the manual [1].
