Trying to build cross tool chain using egcs-980302

I've hunted around for the answer, but I can't seem to find it...

I've got:

I'm trying to build a complete tool chain that can be used on a RH4.2
on a pentium pro AND retargeted for an embedded ppc-unknown-eabi.
This way the simulations running under RH will give me a great
warm-n-fuzzy about the code running in the embedded target. (Besides,
gdb is much better to use on the host than in the target).

When tyring to build for the RH-4.2, config.guess in egcs-980302
declares the system to be a i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1, and gdb-4.16
declares that an unsupported configuration: 

$ ../gdb-4.16/configure --host=i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
Invalid configuration `i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1': machine `i686-pc-linux' not recognized

If I try gdb's guess of i686-unknown-linux, gdb complains:

$ ../gdb-4.16/configure --host=i686-unkown-linux
Created "Makefile" in /usr/bigdisk/pbarada/src/gdb/objdir
../../gdb-4.16/bfd/../ltconfig: ../../gdb-4.16/bfd/../ltconfig: No such file or directory
configure: error: libtool configure failed
Configure in /usr/bigdisk/pbarada/src/gdb/objdir/bfd failed, exiting.

So at this point I decided to drop 9 and punt.

1) Do I have the latest sources to build both a native and cross
   system? If not where do I get the latest set?
2) How do I stick all of this source together into one directory so I
   only have to configure and build once?

I've looked around on the EGCS pages, and over on, and
I haven't found much to help me...

Any info will be much appreciated.
