I sent you some links already. If you can build a cross compiler even  
without a libc and use that to build a kernel, that's a huge step up.  
(We can use the existing root filesystem images to test said kernel,  
then tackle libc and such as a second pass. The kernel build shouldn't  
use any external libraries for the target code. The host code uses the  
host compiler, of course.)

If uClibc doesn't build out of the box, I should have musl in before  
too much longer. That's been built with llvm before.
