I've committed this patch to fix this. (The systems I tested on had
suitable versions of these libraries installed where host GCC could find
them, so I didn't notice that the newly built libraries weren't being
Actually use newly built host libraries in build-many-glibcs.py.
This patch adds the missing GCC configure options required to make use
of the newly built host libraries in build-many-glibcs.py.
