You also need the GNU libc which is also on kernel.panic.  You should
get the libc binaries even if you want to recompile everything.
Bootstrapping just from sources is nice torture due to cyclic dependencies
and other traps.

Btw, someone at SGI is mirroring kernel.panic daily.  So you don't need to
wait for our slow pipe.
