I think that if you run the "compilers" stage of build-many-glibcs.py for
a single configuration, the resulting installed tools, if it's for a
configuration that can run natively on the system you are using, should be
entirely suitable for doing native build / test of glibc.
(Caveat regarding using build-many-glibcs.py on Power systems: it defaults
parallelism to the number of CPU cores reported by the operating system,
but some Power systems have a number of hardware threads that is much
larger than an actual sensible level of parallelism. So you may want to
specify a -j option to avoid it defaulting to something like -j160.)
