As I've said in the past, there's quite a bit of learning/discovery
to be done before doing the first successful cross-compiler. You
have to understand how the compiler looks in the variuos places for
includes, libraries and startup files.
You need to install Linux headers, startup files and libraries before
anything can be linked successfully.
Please take this to crossgcc (you have the URL from previous message),
it's much more relevant there. There's been on-going discussion there
on how to do exactly what you're trying to do, and it might help to
look through the archives and getting in touch with the person who
has done this successfully (if any).
