You have to be able to provide a crt1.o for your target system. I highly
doubt newlib's crt files are going to be appropriate for a linux target.

What is most important is that you point to header files that are appropriate
for your target. ie, if you're sitting on a rh5.2-ix86 system, then
/usr/include is totally useless for a powerpc target.
