The softfloat crosschains from crosstool are known to work; we currently
use gcc-3.3.3 and glibc 2.3.2 with binutils 2.14 which is known to be
stable. You can easily play with the parameters if you try PTXdist;
building the above toolchain is something like

	make toolchain_arm-softfloat-linux-gnu-3.3.3_glibc_2.3.2_config
	make world 

and if you want to try out other versions just 'make menuconfig' and
change to something different. PTXdist uses crosstool to actually build
the toolchains.
