Thanks ! 
20041030 patch worked against 20041027-glibc tarball from CVS with this:
../configure --prefix=/usr/hppa-redhat-linux --target=hppa-redhat-linux --host=hppa-redhat-linux --build=x86_64-linux --enable-shared --disable-threads --
enable-add-ons=linuxthreads --with-tls --enable-kernel=2.4.18 --without-cvs --disable-gd

This builded till the end.


One more problem:
binutils for hppa [latest from CVS], i think binutils build wrong elf entry:

Lets see a elfutils strip test:
[root@yoda Test]#eu-strip
eu-strip: while writing `': invalid section entry size

 This library is the glibc which one I cross builded for hppa target [by version/patch sugested by you Carlos],  while build a crossplatform rpm of glibc for parisc
at final packaging the rpm mechanism use eu-strip [from elfutils tool] to strip apart elf binary and *.debuginfo in two separate file, 
but it fail with "eu-strip: while writing `': invalid section entry size"
  I belive that is an binutils bug, as a comparasion when i hitted this bug on sparc machines too a while ago and Jakub Jelinek fixed this isue in binutils.

Any suggestion/advice ?

Please correct me if I am wrong.

I used:
gcc-3.3.4, binutils-[from late October CVS], latest elfutils, and i use x86_64 host machine, but eu-strip is transparent 
when it strip down.
 As remark i successfuly sripped arm/mips elf binaries on my x86_64 but hppa fail.


excuse my poor english, latin native language here :)
