Attemping multilib Cross LFS from Mac OS X

Hey Guys,

Throwing this out there in case anyone has any ideas. I'm following the 
current Cross LFS instructions (generally) to attempt to build multilib 
on a PowerPC G5 running Mac OS X. (I added a patch for ppc multilib just 
now to the patches repo for that.) I can get up to the glibc-headers 
section before hitting an error.

First of all, I altered slightly the glibc headers instructions to use 
with ppc multilib. After 'cd ../glibc-build', you need to add:

echo "libc_cv_ppc_machine=yes" >> config.cache

And then add '--cache-file=config.cache" to the configure line.

Configure runs successfully, but then during make I get the following:

It *seems* like the --with-headers flag isn't working the way it should. 
Anyone have any ideas?
