It looks to me that that configuration is not right for the build.

tcc -DPACKAGE=\"newlib\" -DVERSION=\"1.8.2\"  -I. -I. -O2
-DMISSING_SYSCALL_NAMES -I../../targ-include -I.././../libc/include
-fno-builtin      -g -c atoi.c
"atoi.c", line 1: Error:
  [ISO 6.8.2]: Can't open included file, 'no-builtin'.

This indicates to me that you are passing -fno-builtin to tcc.  This is
gcc option and apparently causing tcc to preinclude a header file.  
I can't speak to the other options causing tcc problems.  

As a secondary issue, I don't know what host/target the tcc you are
using is
configured for and what you configured newlib for.  It is quite possible
the tcc configuration != the newlib configuration.

I think what you are doing could prove interesting but so far you aren't 
really compiling code yet.  You still have compiler invocation
to address.
