Just edit /usr/include/sys/cdefs.h to something like:
#if !__GNUC_PREREQ (2,92) || (defined(__sparc__) && defined(__arch64__) && !__GNUC_PREREQ (2,95))
# define __restrict     /* Ignore */

The issue is that the egcs64 compiler is based on a snapshot of pre-egcs
1.2 which does not have yet the __restrict keyword, but is catched by the

On the other side, what files are you compiling with the egcs64 compiler
that they include glibc headers?
egcs64 should be used only to compile kernel modules, for the rest you
should use normal gcc (and make sure the system can deal with converting its
syscalls/ioctls etc. between 32bit userland and 64bit kernel).

64bit userland will be ready in a not too distant future (but not using the
egcs64 compiler, but using patched gcc 2.96, glibc 2.1.90 and stuff like
