Thanks for the quick response...

(i.e. the cross-compiler I'm building is to run on the i686-pc-linux-gnu
system, and produce powerpc-linux binaries linked (hopefully) against newlib.)

I wouldn't say I'm sure, but this is for an embedded project on a Linux kernel,
where newlib's leanness is rather appealing. I'm not expecting the full
functionality of glibc, but I'd appreciate a gently pointer if anyone knows
that this can't possibly work.

Thanks for the pointers to the RPMs. I don't think I need the runtime libs and
headers before building binutils and gcc though; once I've got binutils and
gcc built, I can build the runtime libs myself.
