It seems to me that you're trying to build glibc 2.3.2 here with your
system's (i.e i386) gcc.  That is probably not what you want, you
should first compile a first-stage mipsel-abcd-linux-gnu-gcc 3.3.3,
and use THAT to build glibc.

Normally crosstool arranges this for you, but I can't see what goes
wrong, because there's no full build log.
