  You should be using i386-sysv, then, not i386-coff, and you'll need
the headers, libs and startup files supplied by the OS manufacturer, or
could perhaps use glibc.  The plain i386-coff (no OS specifier ) target is
for embedded boards with no OS, and newlib is a c library for embedded
boards with no OS, but it sounds like you have a desktop computer running
an operating system which you want to target...
