Yes, you do - at least if you want to make sure you completely
understand the technology and that you will in all situations be able
to build your tools from scratch.

If you stick with your existing toolchain you must find a version of
glibc-devel that matches your glibc. The compiler version is not so
much interesting here.

Did you ever have a look at our ELDK? It's free for download, and a
lot of projects seem to be using it (and of course we use it ourself
for a couple of projects, too).
Please see http://www.denx.de/twiki/bin/view/DULG/ELDK for details.

Karim Yaghmour: "Building Embedded Linux Systems" [Paperback: 400
pages, O'Reilly & Associates; (May 2003); ISBN 059600222X] is
definitely worth reading.
