Dear Peter

Just a quick note to let know (in case anyone finds it usefull at some point) one can build a reasonably approaching toochain, namely with:
- Buildroot 2010.05
- uclibc
- Linux headers
- gcc 4.1.2
- binutils 2.17
- patches from http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/uclibc-cvs/2006-September/023471.html
- patch from https://bugs.busybox.net/show_bug.cgi?id=4171 to build root fs (but I only need toolchain)

I still could not be successful with gcc 3.4.x (probably requires binutils 2.15). Later gcc 4.3 would also fail (asset issue).

Of course I did not try all gcc combos, but that one seems decently ok.

I'm still interested if anyone has a trick to fully match linux 2.6.36, uClibc 0.9.28, gcc 3.4.2

Thanks again for your kind support.

You normally shouldn't need -mulibc. Does it work without?
