To clarify:

This is not a clarification, it is your opinion.  It is an opinion
with which many disagree.  

It is my opinion, and that of others, that sh-linux-gnu-gcc should not
require a multilibbed glibc to be installed.  This has been repeated
many times, by myself and by others.

I have built the compiler by removing some of the multilibs.  I think
I already said that.
