my bad(bad advice on my part).
What I was asking is maybe you installed those
libs in the same location of the host instead of
/tool.(DESTDIR=* is how define the destination
of where you want your new build installed, keep in mind
libc use install_root=).
I did follow the book, but then again was so anxious to get
