because you need a gcc before you can compile glibc.  rather than
trying to help every person try and figure out how to cross-compile
stuff, it's almost always a better idea to use crosstool(-ng) to
create the cross-compiler for you.  it takes care of all the random
issues that cross-compiler creation runs into.
