gcc for Palm Pilot (fwd)

I set the following to the old list by mistake.  However, I have a different

I sent mail to the lists last night about building the palmos tools 
specifically gcc-  (See message quoted below.)

Well w/o waiting for an answer I tryed using the egcs-1.1.2 source which
with LinuxPPC.  The configure went well (acepted m68k-palmos-coff) without 
trouble.  However, I keep getting unable to find file errors, specifically 
things like stdlib.h.  I added -I/usr/include to the compile comand which 
removed the errors.  I am concerned for 2 reasons, 1) because the makefile
/usr/include defined with a coment "cross-compile redefines this" 2) the 
compiler gives a warning "undefined asuming Big-Endian byte ordering."   I 
have never built a x-comiler before.  I assume that because the compiler is 
runing on my PPC it would need the standard system includes.  Is this

Has anyone built the egcs tools for the palmos?  It is possible or is gnu
just configureing for a phantom set up it really does not understand?
