I might agree with you, but I've been compiling nearly this same
kernel for sh4 with gcc3 for some time with good luck.
(The Linux kernel on sh4 *requires* gcc3.)
So I'm pretty sure it's just a crappy build script
or some other simple problem, and I'm going to
run all the gcc/glibc/kernel regression tests I can
to narrow the problem down, and fix it.

We have to move past gcc2.9x sometime.
