My host machine is x86, my external toolchain compiles binaries for arm
(toolchain generated by crosstool-ng, it uses uClibc).

What do you mean ?

It just seems logical to me that when using an external toolchain, one
needs to tell the toolchain where the headers and libraries are, when
they are not in the sysroot directory of the toolchain as specified
during the generation of the toolchain.
