A couple other thoughts:
* find someone who's built a working glibc for that platform,
and compare their build procedure and patches with crosstool;
maybe crosstool is missing something

* try running the gcc and glibc regression tests (linked statically)
to make sure the compiler is generally ok.  This is a lot of work,
but is worth it if you can do it.
