As for toolchain versions... with gcc43 I get test suite errors in Binutils,
both fsf and hjl. With gcc42 I get test suite errors from glibc-2.8.
Binutils-2.18, gcc-4.1.x, and glibc-2.8, is the only toolchain I get get to
pass test suites, without backporting multiple patches. I imagine that this
was the toolchain that glibc-2.8 was developed on.
Using a glibc prior to 2.8 means backporting bug fixes for glibc, so there's
no great advantage. I think it's better to use an older gcc than glibc
because gcc41 is still maintained, and older glibc's are not.
