Well, at least this is doing what I intended....

What about this part:

Additionally, when --with-cross-host is defined, libstdc++-v3 assumes
that unless you declare the target as *-*-linux* you are using newlib
and overrides...

Don't get me started on how messed up it is to configure with --target
and in the configure/build mechanism have this match for host. This
patch was me giving up on sane semantics, and I'm still a little sore
from having to toe the line....

Can't you just configure --with-newlib?

What does libiberty do? I'm not quite sure what to do, and kind of think
that the current configure is mostly correct (but there should be a way
for you to get a cross compiler with an installed newlib working. (Maybe
--with-sysroot=foo would work.) 

It would be nice if libiberty and libstdc++ did the same thing, wouldn't
it?
