how to build cross-compiling toolchains for PowerPC?

We use uclibc instead glibc, it is smaller.

We use buildroot to build the cross-toolchain

and the following versions of binutils, gcc etc.:

Denx linux kernel 2.4.25
u-boot 1.1.6
gcc 3.3.6
linux-libc-headers 2.4.29
uClibc 0.9.27
gdb 6.3

I hope this helps.
