Those are good news. I think, correct me if I am wrong, cross compiler
you have built it is a bare metal compiler. In case you need a
compiler linked against eglibc, you can try to do it the way it is
explained at:


A long time ago I tested it, it was working fine for me, I can't
remember if by that time sh* architectures were in dpkg tables or I
had to add them locally.

I am short of time to work on this, but let me know if you have any
issues or if I can help either way.
