That fast I haven't reproduced the errors you encounter, but I have one
to add on MAXine building glibc-2.0.7-20:
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/glibc-2.0.7/wcsmbs'
make -C time subdir_lib
make: *** [time/subdir_lib] Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Which binutils? I'm using 2.8.1 with R3k patch.

I would like to now how to start a kernel without compiled in serial
support, is it possible that a kernel boots without an initial console? I
build such a kernel, but it didn't completly started, I guess it paniced
not having a console. As Vladimir pointed out the instability on R3K
DEC's is outside common R3k code, with that in mind I'm curious what the
MAXine does with its native console supported. That's what I'm currently
trying to do: building a kernel with the framebuffer supported.
