Greetings all -

My thanks to Kevin Williams and Evandro Borracini for their suggestions on
fixing my cross compiler build problem.

The problem was solved by doing two things:
1. Edit the file <path where you put glibc>/lib/  as follows:

GROUP ( /lib/ /lib/libc_nonshared.a )
GROUP ( <path where you put glibc>/lib/ <path where you put
glibc>/lib/libc_nonshared.a ) (Evandro)

That fixed the c cross compiler build.

2. Apply a patch tp gcc from
That fixed the c++ cross compiler build.

I will forward this information to the maintainer of the cross compiler
