I am trying to build glibc-2.8 for arm-1176 baseboard. As arm is  
maintained separately through glibc-ports package, therefore I downloaded  
glibc-ports-2.8 package but I am not able to configure it properly with  

Below is the configure command I am using. Please let me know if I am  
missing something here:

# ../configure --host=arm-linux-eabi --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu  
--enable-add-ons=nptl,glibc-ports-2.8 --enable-shared  
--prefix=/opt/arm-linux-toolchain --with-tls
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... arm-linux-eabi
configure: running configure fragment for add-on nptl
checking add-on glibc-ports-2.8 for preconfigure fragments... am33 arm
hppa m68k mips
*** The GNU C library is currently not available for this platform.
*** So far nobody cared to port it and if there is no volunteer it
*** might never happen.  So, if you have interest to see glibc on
*** this platform visit
*** and join the group of porters

Please point me to any documentation which can help me achieving it.

Thanks in advance.
