Thanks for the idea, but I was able to bypass libc;
I was going to email the list with my solution as
soon as I ironed out some kind of incompatibility
I'm getting in object code between C++ compilers
(of the same version). Though I haven't figured
it out, this is the simple solution derived from

	tar xjf binutils-2.17.tar.bz2
	mv binutils-2.17 src
	mkdir build
	cd build
	export PREFIX=/usr/local/xgcc
	export TARGET=i686-elf
	../src/configure --target=$TARGET --prefix=$PREFIX --disable-nls
	sudo make install
	tar xjf gcc-core-4.1.2.tar.bz2 && tar xjf gcc-g++-4.1.2.tar.bz2
	mv gcc-4.1.2 src
	mkdir build
	cd build
	export PATH=$PATH:$PREFIX/bin
	../src/configure --target=$TARGET --prefix=$PREFIX --disable-nls -- 
enable-languages=c,c++ --without-headers
	sudo make install-gcc

That MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.4 is necessary on Mac OS X 10.5

In any case, I wish that the configuration process/switches were cleaned
up and documented more.
