I've not been able to build an x86 to ia64 cross compiler using 3.0
"out of the box".  I have a patch for 3.0.4 in the tarball at

which seems to work.  It's a hack, so no guarantees.

The 3.1 pre-release branch works fine, so you might consider using CVS
or a pre-release snapshot.  See

The gcc mailing list thread beginning with the following may also
be helpful.

And here's another useful resource, if you haven't already discovered it:
