Hello,

Please in the future include the options you use to configure with when making bootstrap bug 
reports.

Building a cross-compiler is unfortunately probably the worst documented part of gcc. The 
crossgcc mailing list (http://sources.redhat.com/ml/crossgcc ) probably has the most useful and 
current information.

Basically though, you need the headers, and the libraries from the machine you're targetting. Once 
you have those installed in a directory (e.g. /usr/local/alpha-linux/build), you'll need to tell gcc 
where they are with --with-sysroot=/usr/local/alpha-linux/build for configure. Also take a look at 
the cross compiler minihowto (it misses the --with-sysroot but IIRC gets everything else right).

Dara

P.S. If these instructions fix your problem here, I recommend opening a bug essentially stating that 
gcc is effectively lacking on-site cross compilation documentation.
