Currently crosstool does not support either NPTL builds, or support
creating multilib cross toolchains.

The projects have slightly different goals, crosstool is used to create
a sysrooted cross toolchain for building binaries for target

Cross-lfs creates a specialised cross-toolchain for the sole purpose of
cross building enough target system native tools (linked against
c-libraries located outside of standard directories) to natively compile
the final OS on the target system.
