Trouble building gcc-3.2.2/glibc-2.3.2 for cross powerpc-linux

I've been pounding my head on the glass tube trying to build
gcc-3.2.2/glibc-2.3.2 for powerpc-linux on my x86 linux machine.

I attempted to build a bootstrap that I could use to build glibc, so I
first built binutils, installed the linux header files and configured
the bootstrap with:

	export PATH=${INSTALL_DIR}/bin:${HOST_INSTALL_DIR}/bin:$$PATH; \
	echo "PATH="$$PATH; \
	${GCC_SOURCE_PATH}/configure --target=${TARGET} \
	--prefix=${INSTALL_DIR} \
	--with-local-prefix=${INSTALL_DIR}/${TARGET} \
        --without-headers --with-newlib \
	--disable-shared --enable-languages=c \

And it fails building libgcc2.c since gcc/config/rs6000/linux.h thinks
that libgcc2 has *all* its headers available:

unfortunatley I can't give it any headers until after glibc installs
them, but glibc needs a cross compiler.  The classic catch-22....

Is there *any* way to configure gcc so that in the bootstrap phase it will
not assume that *any* header file is around(and skip building anything
that *does* assume that)?

I got around it by brute-force setting LIB2ADDEH/LIB2ADDEHDP to empty
strings in gcc/Makefile:

# Use unwind-dw2-fde-glibc
LIB2ADDEH = $(srcdir)/unwind-dw2.c $(srcdir)/unwind-dw2-fde-glibc.c \
LIB2ADDEHDEP = unwind-dw2-fde.h unwind-dw2-fde.c
# Common support for PowerPC ELF targets (both EABI and SVR4).

# HACK!!! Don't build *any* exception code in the bootstrap phase

Also, glibc-2.3.2 configured successfully and built, but it failed
installing with:

make[3]: *** No rule to make target `/home/pbarada/work/cvs-wavemark/cross-linux-tools/foo2/ppc-linux-glibc/dlfcn/', needed by `/home/pbarada/work/cvs-wavemark/cross-linux-tools/foo2/ppc-linux-glibc/elf/sprof'.  Stop.
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/pbarada/work/cvs-wavemark/cross-linux-tools/glibc-2.3.2/elf'
make[2]: *** [elf/subdir_install] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/pbarada/work/cvs-wavemark/cross-linux-tools/glibc-2.3.2'
make[1]: *** [install] Error 2

It turns out that in dlfcn there is a, so again I brute
forced it by creating a symbolic link between and

Does anyone have any suggestions how I can get past this?
Has anyone build a powerpc-linux cross-toolchain using glibc-3.2.2 and

Any help is appreciated.
