I've been there already. What really needs to be there is libc with all
headers. It is very hard to compile libc. Its makefiles do really crazy
things. It even tried to commit something to CVS.

The only reason I'm asking to compile something is because the libc from
"gonzo" is broken - the kernel crashes if I run anything linked with it.

Not very useful for me. I'm using Linux/PPC :-)
