Just figured it out - there are a few things specific to glibc that are 
vital to making a valid cross-compiler (even for my intel-to-intel case):
  1) host and target should to use the same version of glibc (redhat's 
source rpm also has a shash of patches)
  2) glibc takes the --host argument (while I was feeding --target)
  3) redhat's source rpm passes additional options to configure

So, people playing with the --with-sysroot option and building 
cross-compilers must really be careful with GLibc.
