Hmm... I'm not exactly following this. I have gcc installed on all of 
the systems that I work with.

OK, I didn't understand the dependency on glibc. I was just following 
that IBM document.

OK. So I've discovered --with-sysroot which seems to be grabbing and 
patching the include files correctly. Now it's dieing with

   ./options.h:462: error: 'HOST_BITS_PER_INT' undeclared here (not in a 
   ./options.h:462: error: bit-field 'padding' width not an integer constant

which appears to be llvm-gcc specific because it doesn't happen in 
vanilla 4.2.4.

I'm definitely moving forward though. Thanks for the advice.
