May I suggest having a look at http://www.kegel.com/crosstool/ ?
It downloads and builds gcc, binutils, and glibc -- and then
tests them! I'd be more than happy to have it get more real-world
use; right now it's only well tested for sh4, ppc405, and ppc750.
I'd also be quite happy to see uclibc support added.
I could suggest also the scripts of C.Hollabaugh (based on potato)
I have the idea of building a package for them eventually. They are arm
and power-pc oriented, but could be easily adapted to other platform.
I'll add a link to those in my crosstool doc, thanks for the link!
Note that Hollabaugh's scripts only support gcc-2.9x and glibc-2.2.3;
he hasn't discovered the nasty things needed to support gcc-3.x or glibc-2.3.x yet.
My crosstool scripts support gcc-2.9x through gcc-3.3
and glibc-2.2.3 through glibc-3.3.
Also, Hollabaugh's scripts don't run the binutils, gcc, or glibc
regression tests; mine do. You can see my regression results
This was a bit of a trick; took me a month to work out and
document how to run those tests remotely.
