Hi all,

I got trouble with compiling mipsel gnu toolchains.
Basicly, i downloaded all the required source code to
build a cross compiling toolchains for MIPS


the building process went fine, i can compile kernel
and sereral packages, However, when I compile zlib
package with the toolchain, it complaint that can not
reference to i_am_not_a_leaf. Do a search on runtime
library, there is no such thing but clearly, this
external variable is declared in glibc csu/initfini.c.
The mipsel-linux-gcc remove this dummy variable
somehow. Now, i compile glibc using sdelinux-mipsel
from MIPS site. This compiler keeps the variable
reference in the object file. So end up I have to use
glibc compiled by sdelinux and gnu-gcc from gnu, a
problem with this is mipsel-linux-strip can't strip
library linked by sdelinux linkder. 

Anyone got any ideas why?
