in buildroot. I spent a little time getting the buildroot's toolchain
configuration options to match those of my new toolchain, but this was
fairly simple, and mostly a process of trial and error. Once my
toolchain configuration options were correct, the resulting build was

else) is to build the cross-toolchain and glibc using crosstool-NG.
Then this toolchain can be used as an external toolchain in buildroot,
together with the glibc that you build. It is mostly pretty
