An eglibc toolchain built with crosstool-ng, also works (both
compilation as running on target).

To run properly, though, valgrind needs an unstripped ld.so
I worked around this by adding ld.so as an exception to the strip
command in target-finalize (but am hoping for inclusion of Sven
Neumann's 'exclude-from-strip' patch)

Best regards,
