It seems likely that gcc-4 is too new to build some older
toolchains.  You might need to tell crosstool to use
a different CC.  I've done this before, it's not too bad;
ideally you just set the CC and AR environment variables
to the compiler you want to build crosstool with.

If that doesn't do it, go ahead and post some of the errors...
