the "-" infront of the cp means ignore errors.  When you build for
x86_64, buildroot puts libgcc_s* etc. in $(REAL_GNU_TARGET_NAME)/lib64
not in lib.  so this line will produce an error, and because the patch
stops make from ignoring this, the build stops.

-	-cp -dpf $(STAGING_DIR)/usr/$(REAL_GNU_TARGET_NAME)/lib/libgcc_s*
+	cp -dpf $(STAGING_DIR)/usr/$(REAL_GNU_TARGET_NAME)/lib/libgcc_s*

I don't know.   I know we can either modify the gcc build to install
into lib instead of lib64 but I haven't tried it.
