I crosscompiled glibc-2.2.5.

I referenced the patch in denx page, and fixed the crosscompile problem by following procedure.

1. Move the sysdeps/powerpc/fclrexcpt.c to sysdeps/powerpc/fpu/
mv sysdeps/powerpc/fclrexcpt.c sysdeps/powerpc/fpu/

2. Delete the sysdeps/powerpc/memset.S
rm sysdeps/powerpc/memset.S

3. Edit the sysdeps/powerpc/Makefile
#ifeq ($(subdir),gmon)
#libm-support += fenv_const fe_nomask

4. Compile
CC=${TARGET}-gcc AR=${TARGET}-ar RANLIB=${TARGET}-ranlib \
        CFLAGS="-msoft-float -D_SOFT_FLOAT -mcpu=860 -O2" \
        ../${GLIBC}/configure --host=$TARGET --prefix=${PREFIX} \
        --enable-add-ons=linuxthreads --with-headers=${PREFIX}/include \

Good luck.
