The problem is that the build of gcc now depends on having access to the 
glibc headers for the crosscompilation target. I have solved this in my 
x86-64 scripts by introducing this script that handles setting up all 
necessary include files before any compilation is being done. Feel free to 
take as much as you want from it. You can find the rest of the crossbuild 
suite in cvs. What you definately need is the glibc headers, 
and perhaps the fix at the end to it (glibc x86-64 install-headers doesn't 
install features.h and gnu/stubs.h).

In your case, HOSTARCH is mipsel-linux. TOOLCHAIN_DIR is the location of the 
cross compilation tool chain.


# Read pathnames and compiler options
source config

# Set up the links to the kernel include files and make sure version.h is here
mkdir -p $TOOLCHAIN_DIR/$HOSTARCH/include
ln -s $LINUX_SOURCE/include/linux .
ln -s $LINUX_SOURCE/include/asm-$KERNELARCH asm
make include/linux/version.h

build_dir ct_headers

# Set the sys-include link

# Install glibc headers
$GLIBC_SOURCE/configure --prefix=$TOOLCHAIN_DIR/$HOSTARCH --enable-add-ons 
--with-headers=$TOOLCHAIN_DIR/$HOSTARCH/include $HOSTARCH &&
make cross-compiling=yes install-headers &&

# Now fix enough to make gcc compile
cp $GLIBC_SOURCE/include/features.h $TOOLCHAIN_DIR/$HOSTARCH/include &&
mkdir -p $TOOLCHAIN_DIR/$HOSTARCH/include/gnu &&
touch $TOOLCHAIN_DIR/$HOSTARCH/include/gnu/stubs.h

exit $?
