I'm currently making my way through Trac's CLFS book. When trying to configure the 32-bit version of EGLIBC-2.15, using the options:

BUILD_CC="gcc" CC="${CLFS_TARGET}-gcc ${BUILD32}" \
AR="${CLFS_TARGET}-ar" RANLIB="${CLFS_TARGET}-ranlib" \
CFLAGS="-march=$(cut -d- -f1 <<< $CLFS_TARGET32) -mtune=generic -g -O2" \
../eglibc-2.15/configure --prefix=/tools \
--host=${CLFS_TARGET32} --build=${CLFS_HOST} \
--disable-profile --enable-add-ons \
--with-tls --enable-kernel=2.6.0 --with-__thread \
--with-binutils=/cross-tools/bin --with-headers=/tools/include \
--cache-file=config.cache

I get the following output:

configure: loading cache config.cache
checking build system type... x86_64-cross-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc -m32
checking for suffix of object files... configure: error: in `/mnt/lfs/sources/eglibc-build':
configure: error: cannot compute suffix of object files: cannot compile
See `config.log' for more details.

The config.log reads:

Trying to compile with the CC parameter set to just "gcc $BUILD32" gets me much further, although it does complain about the loss of a triplet. Doing so, however, gives me:

checking for __builtin_expect... no
configure: error: support for __builtin_expect needed

I'm lost at this point, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
