You're not fitting the native toolchain on a floppy (the /usr/include
headers alone _compress_ to multiple megabytes), and if you skip the
native toolchain you might as well use the much simpler
https://github.com/landley/mkroot build.

I need to finish implementing the various targets' kernel builds, do a
proper release of that, write up better documentation for it (probably a
big README since github displays that), and get the control images to
run under it.

I also need to update the aboriginal linux website to say that the
project's concluded and mkroot is the successor. I keep starting a
writeup and it goes off into long explanations of the history and what I
was trying to accomplish and so on... I should just finish
