init fails w/ new build of gcc & glibc

I'm attempting to build gcc for powerPC as well as new binutils &
glibc, -- all in an attempt to support a new 4xx chip w/ floating

I'm using HHL 1.2 for the 405 & walnut as my base and am attempting
to start using the new compiler and libraries:

I've recompiled the kernel w/ the new compiler (albeit -msoft-float)
and it boots fine;

running w/ the hhl 1.2 libraries the whole system runs fine;

supplying all of the libraries built under the new glibc causes the
following when init is spawned:

Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!
init: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open sh ared object file:
cannot load shared object file: No such file or directory

-- there is no comment as to what's missing ...

I can spawn sash in place of 'init' and that runs (no surprise ...)
-- I realize I've probably screwed up something pretty basic --
I'm probably out of synch somewhere in the libraries but don't
know how to debug this further.

under sash, when I try to -exec /bin/ldd /bin/busybox all I get
is a file-not-found for ldd ...

thanks in advance,
