Am I crazy? Does newlib build nothing?

Thank you for your response; however, this does not work.  Here is what 
I get:

$ make all-target-newlib
make: Nothing to be done for `all-target-newlib'.

$ make all-target-libgloss
make: Nothing to be done for `all-target-libgloss'.

I have looked at the Makefile that configure is generating, and while I 
don't understand its structure very well, it looks like it generates a 
bunch of maybe-XXX targets that could or could not depend on "real" 
targets, but my Makefile has empty targets for every single one of the 
maybe-XXX targets.  I don't know why configure is deciding to generate a 
Makefile like this.
