  Yes, it is.  Libiberty supplies various utility functions that don't
exist or vary in implementation details across different systems; it has
been ported to many host systems, so it is used to make the compiler code
compatible across all those systems.

  It is compiled twice during the overall cross-compiler build, once to
be linked as part of the cross-compiler itself, then later it is rebuilt
with the nearly-completed cross-compiler so as to be available as a lib
for the cross-programs you write.  This second build is non-essential,
but the first is vital.

  Unpatch whatever changes you made, they almost certainly aren't 
necessary.  Are you aware of the necessity of supplying header files
appropriate to the C runtime lib you will be using with this cross-compiler
during the build stage ?  What kind of system do you actually want to
work with, a bare ppc board or something with some kind of OS ?
