cross building gcc 3.4.3 for ia64 builds on i386 host......

I'm having trouble building gcc 3.4.3 to run under ia32-linux and use
ia64-linux as a target.  Here's what I did:

(1)  downloaded


(2)  unpacked both of the above.  In same top level directory, created
build-binutils and build-gcc.

(3)  cd build-binutils
../binutils- --prefix=/usr/local/gcc-3.4.3  \

This builds fine.

make install

to get the new binutils installed.

(4)  cd ../build-gcc;
../gcc-3.4.3/configure --prefix=/usr/local/gcc-3.4.3 --target=ia64-linux \

This fails compiling ../gcc-3.4.3/gcc/config/ia64/fde-glibc.c with errors
that start with:

../../gcc-3.4.3/gcc/config/ia64/fde-glibc.c:36:20: stdlib.h: No such file or 
../../gcc-3.4.3/gcc/config/ia64/fde-glibc.c:37:18: link.h: No such file or

and quickly get worse from there.

I tried copying stdlib.h and link.h from the /usr/include of the host i386
box into the gcc-3.4.3/include direcotry.  It found the files, but got lots
of new and different errors.

Any suggestions?

I've searched (via Google) for hints or howto's on how to build a gcc cross
compiler, but have not had much success.  Does such a thing exist?

Many thanks, in advance.

The box said: "Requires Windows 98 or better",
            so I installed Linux.
