OK, I think I've got this cross-compiling thing licked.
Modulo some bogus interactions between the mostly-hacked 2.1.36 kernel
headers and the glibc 2.0.1 stuff (which seems to be a bit off itself,
but that's for another day), userland is coming along nicely.
I've been rebuilding with the glibc-2.0.1 stuff and all-dynamic
linking, and I've got:
ncurses_1.9.9g (just the libncurses.a, ma'am)
net-tools' inetd, arp, ifconfig, rarp, route and telnetd
I can't get ping or bash to work build just yet (ping was _not_ happy with
my headers), but I'll keep at it.
Once I'm done here, I'll be making a new root.tar.gz for anyone who
wants to play around with it.
