Cross-compile package combinations

I used crosstool and was able to effortlessly install gcc 3.3.2, glibc 2.3.2
for powerpc. Thanks a lot for your suggestion.

One of the reasons I did crosstool was to avoid that kind of
hackery.  With crosstool, you don't need to build gcc 2.95.3
just to build gcc 3.2.3.  Crosstool does clean builds from pristine,
minimally patched source.
