John - I have something you might just find interesting and useful.
It's still in a raw state, but it's far enough that I feel comfortable
having an experienced builder try it:

Since I build on so many headless machines (my Sparc, MIPS, and PPC
machines all run headless under normal circumstances), and I hate
building via serial console, I wrote up this little hint which
installs Inetutils, IPROUTE2, DHCPCD, and the Dropbear SSH server
(meant for embedded systems) as part of the initial cross-built
programs.  This way, you can  SSH in to do your final build.
