I've misread the sysroot comment in the buildroot (I thought it was optionally to use it), but without it the buildroot tries to put resulting cross compiled binutils into /usr, which is not what I want.

Maybe finding the 'latest' known working compiler for cris would be the starting point and the move on to the newer versions. Axis has originally ported cris architecture to gcc 3.2.1 and I'm not aware if they are even trying to keep up with the gcc/glibc/uClibc/binutils mainstream changes in order to provide latest tools..
