YACCQ : CC_FOR_BUILD=/usr/local/bin/gcc8 ??

So this is getting better and worse.  :-)

Seems that CC_FOR_BUILD is the native local gcc8 that was used to create
the cross compiler and not the cross compiler itself.

So with CC_FOR_BUILD=/usr/local/bin/gcc8 the process continues well into
the gmp build where it blows up due to a complaint about gmp.h not

checking for _mulx_u64... cannot test, assume no
checking for long double... yes
checking format of `long double' floating point... IEEE quad, little endian
checking for TLS support using C11... cannot test, assume no
checking for TLS support... cannot test, assume no
checking if __float128 with hex constants is supported... no
checking for Static Assertion support... yes
checking for library containing clock_gettime... none required
checking for gmp.h... no
configure: error: gmp.h can't be found, or is unusable.
gmake[1]: *** [Makefile:5139: configure-mpfr] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory
gmake: *** [Makefile:906: all] Error 2

Right so ... gmp.h headers have to be installed somewhere for the target
system?  However the libs themselves do NOT need to exist?  None of this
is making any sense.
