I am using egcs-1.1.2 powerpc-linux cross-compiler to compile

I tried compiling for the MPC860 with the following command "make
CFLAGS=-mcpu=860".  It got a little way but then died.  I think it is

Is glibc known to compile for this processor ?
I'm pretty sure I need the -mcpu=860 option so that only mpc860 valid
instructions are generated.  Is this correct ?

I don't have the error message at hand but will post it if it will help.

What can I do to compile glibc for the MPC860 processor.
