(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.)

At the moment, I have built llvm 3.3 under gentoo with all the targets enabled but tonight when I get back home, I'll try to build a cross-compiler in my homedir.
