Hmmm bummer

Well it shouldn't be too hard actually.

First trick is to build gcc for cross compiling like if you were
simply compiling the kernel. Then build glibc with something like

mkdir glibc-build
cd glibc-build
../glibc/configure  --with-headers=/usr/src/linux-ia64/include --disable-profile --disable-sanity-checks --disable-cvs --enable-add-ons=crypt --prefix=<glibc-hack-directory>  --host=ia64-gnu-linux --build=i386-linux
make install

Then afterwards one should be able to configure gcc to pick up the
glibc headers and library.
