You want to build an older compiler for your host that you can then
use to build a 68HC11 cross compiler?  That would be a native compiler
not a cross compiler, so crosstool isn't what you want.  I think it
should be as simple as:

$ tar xjr gcc-3.4.6.tar.gz
$ cd gcc-3.4.6
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/gcc346
$ make && make install

Then set your $PATH to find the older compiler first and build your
cross compiler as usual.
