Regarding your other mail, can we consider the issue resolved, then?

Well, I'm having interesting problems. The crosstool build finished clean, but now I can't get ncurses to cross-compile, using the same commands that worked yesterday with the partially built cross-tools tree. I'm still trying to figure out why, but it looks a bit like ncurses is a steaming pile :P

Seems ncurses has issues. To get it to cross-compile I first had to compile it with CC=...arm-gcc, though this fails in a linking phase because it tries to link c++ code using arm-gcc.

Then, run make again with CC=...arm-g++ and it will link.

You can't build the whole thing with CC=..arm-g++ because of
compile errors, however.

I probably got lucky yesterday and got it mostly compiled before
I switched to g++.

Anyway, looks like that's working good enough now, and probably the
errors are all to do with ncurses and nothing wrong with crosstool.
