Cross compile from i686-pc-linux-gnu to mipsel-linux

I trying to build gcc for mipsel-linux architecture.
CC=mipsel-linux-gcc CFLAGS="-Os -mips32 -mtune=4kc" 
../gcc-3.4.3/configure --host=mipsel-linux --target=mipsel-linux 
--build=i686-linux --prefix=/home/me/work/compiling/gcc/build-gcc
and get the following:
Configuring in build-i686-pc-linux-gnu/libiberty
configure: creating cache ../config.cache
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for makeinfo... makeinfo

checking for suffix of object files... configure: error: cannot compute 
suffix of object files: cannot compile
See `config.log' for more details.
make: *** [configure-build-libiberty] Error 1

As I understand it tries to configure modules which run on the build 
machine. I am not very competent in gcc compile and I trying to ask more 
able people :)

What's wrong I do?
