Sample config "i686-nptl-linux-gnu" build fails in step 'Installing C library headers & start files'.

I can't get past step "libc_start_files" when building sample configuration

I've basically run the below sequence of CT-NG commands:
  ../../bin/ct-ng list-samples
  ../../bin/ct-ng i686-nptl-linux-gnu
  ../../bin/ct-ng menuconfig
  ../../bin/ct-ng list-steps
  ../../bin/ct-ng build STOP=libc_start_files V=2
  ../../bin/ct-ng build RESTART=libc_start_files V=2

I removed support for Fortran, Java and DUMA in the given sample configuration.
(Having DUMA gave a build error)

In the build step it fails with:
  "Build failed in step 'Installing C library headers & start files'"
see included build.log.gz file.

It fails in the same manner when running on Ubuntu 10.10 (x86_64).


I'm new to CT-NG. I'm running a sample configuration to verify the installation
and understand how to use the CT-NG tool.
The used sample cofiguration is close to what I think I want later on.
I've checked the "B - Known issues.txt".
I've searched the crossgcc mailing list archive.
I've searched with Google.

I had problems installing CT-NG on openSUSE 12.1.
Found  and followed advise from:
I got rid of "missing menu.h" error.
I installed and used make version 3.81, instead of default 3.82.

On openSUSE 12.1 I need to manually change below line in .config
  CT_WANTS_STATIC_LINK=y    to   n
otherwise the build instantly fails with:
  [ERROR]  Static linking impossible on the host system 'x86_64-build_unknown-linux-gnu'
  [00:03] / make: *** [build] Error 1
This I don't need to do on Ubuntu 10.10.
I guess this has to do with the host GCC installation(?)
