crosstool does this to get around the problem that
older glibc's often can't build with the latest gcc.
Defining GCC_CORE_DIR is optional.
You can just erase that if you want to build
glibc with the same version of gcc.

Or, you can point GCC_CORE_DIR to gcc-3.2.3 or gcc-3.4.5
instead of 3.3.6.    Look at the combinations listed in
to see what works.  Looks like gcc-3.4.5 might be a good choice
at first glance.
