Did you set the prefix to / on the glibc configure line then do a make


you can do this or...

in your new root filesystem something like this in your /usr/powerpc-linux/lib

ln -s ../../lib lib

the glibs have absolute path info in them, so either reconfigure and recompile for
your rootfs using prefix=/ (make sure you use install_root when you make install) or
make a link.

Hope this helps.

ps. I'm going down this very road, let's talk.
