What's the point of compiling these against the new glibc?

Won't bzip2 compress the files in the same way?
Won't patch apply the patch files the same way?
Won't ls, ln, cp or mv do their jobs like they always did? 

What's wrong with building a library-less system to start from? 

Then do whatever is required to clean the toolchain, before compiling the 
final system.

NOTE: I was also looking for a way to build a glibc first to compile ch.5 
against it, but now that it is being done, I can't see the point anymore!
