I think it's still up in the air since there's a lot of "magic" in the
glibc build files. However, I think that at one point it starts
looking for directories named include to install headers from. One of
the places it looks is .. (I think). In this case, ../include is the
same as /tools/include and there's a problem.

I can't confirm that, but Chris' post seems to suggest it.
