This is a general solution that one guy uses to create a combined tree 
of binutils, gcc, newlib and gdb for cross-compiling that was recently 
posted to the gcc maining list.  It might make a useful starting point.

mkdir tmp
cd tmp
mkdir gcc
cd gcc
cvs co gcc-full
cd ..
mkdir binutils
cd binutils
cvs co binutils newlib gdb
cd ..
mkdir build
cd build
../combined/configure ...
make check-gcc

where make-combined.sh has:

rm -rf combined
mkdir combined
cd combined
ln -s ../gcc/gcc/* .
ln -s ../binutils/src/* . > /dev/null 2>&1
rm include
mkdir include
cd include
ln -s ../../gcc/gcc/include/* .
ln -s ../../binutils/src/include/* . > /dev/null 2>&1
