Using Kegel's Cross tool builder


It seems Kegel's cross tool builder is a great tool.
Is it possible to use the tool but build only gcc and binutils ?
I don't want to build linux,gdb,glibc and install linux headers.
I need toolchain for building uboot only.

Thanks.

A compiler without a dedicated 'glibc' will not work.
( Imagine it would, then you have no x86_64-glibc on
your target board and the appplications would never work. )
'Newlib' can be used instead of 'glibc', is much easier to build,
but you will miss a few glibc headers, which probably should be
from the 'libc' already used on the target.
Some kernel-headers are needed too, they better be from the kernel
used on the target.

Please read pinniped's comment here ( cross compiling )
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...6/highlight#11
Start by reading the 'LFS' book and learning how to build a system,
then move on to the 'CLFS' book which shows you how to cross-build.
