Yes. That was my "community give back". :) I wasn't necessarily
the first one to find all this stuff, but I tried to document
what I had to do for sparc-solaris9 -> ppc-elf-linux Since
it didn't work with crosstools-0.42 "out of the box".

I think you should be able to just drop them into
crosstool's patches directory after the 1 time download
is done. That's what the directory is for .. patches
that need to be applied to work with crosstools.

If you're building something later than glibc-2.3.2,
you have to adjust, probably manually. Then you can
give them back to the community if they haven't already
been pulled into the real source base.

At least if you hit the same problems I did, you will
have a good idea of what to look for.
