This is one of the advantages of the one-tree build approach. You need to
build newlib before you can build these other parts. You can probably do
this now by doing:

  make all-gcc install-gcc LANGUAGES="c c++".

which only builds and installs the compiler itself. After this, add the
installed powerpc-eabi-gcc directory to your path. And then configure and
install newlib. *Then* go back to building everything else in the gcc tree
(i.e. make all).

Consider using the single tree approach as described in the FAQ if you have
further difficulty.
