I would think that doing this would provide optimal build results for
glibc. If you do it after the first pass of gcc, but before glibc, then
you wouldn't have to worry about what version of kernel or gcc the host
system has, and you don't have to rely (much) on the host's toolchain -
at least not more than you currently do.

Seriously, though. There's a solution in here somewhere...
