I beg to disagre...

At least for linux, I managed to do it without the runtime. I had to
configure with --with-newlib and to do "make all-gcc" and "make
install-gcc" instead of "make" and "make install"

Eventually it seems to work as well when I just created the missing
header files as empty.

May not apply to Solaris though.
