Well, that seems to have been another problem. As suggested here I chmod'd 
the files in script/ which made that execv-error disappear but then I 
stumbled across some "unknown command 'no'", and that message was displayed
with some perl file.

So, another lesson learned: never try to patch in chapter 6 :) 

I've now downloaded the 2.2.5 tarball and it compiled out-of-the-box, not 
even that small problem with -march=i586 and --host that I had with 2.2.4 
appeared in this version (read: looks like cross-compiling on a Duron for
a Pentium now works fine here from the beginning to the end, no extra
things to do but setting -march and/or --host).

Thanks everybody :)
