This is the right place to ask.

Nothing. The emdebian toolchain collection for wheezy was never quite
right, as you have discovered.

You can use any other suite (squeeze, jessie, unstable) and we have
installabe cross-toolchains for those. But wheezy is broken right now.
Building your own with buildcross (from experimentla) is one way to
solve this, but I tried this recently (in an attempt to fix the above
problem), and something or other didn't work. I forget quite what.
So the short version is that we do not have a good answer for
this. Sorry. Try building your own:
