from very recent experience...i had better luck with a i386 install and crosstool-ng :) 
also i had to build the same version gcc and the like in the toolchain as the gcc i was compiling for the target platform, any other version worked but came up with strange results......
your results may vary....rinse and repeat twice
my 2 cents...

If all else fails, you can build your own cross-toolchain from

The bootstrap.git scripts' stage1 builds a cross-gcc based on the
parameters in the script (it defaults to armv5hl but you can change it
to armv5tel).
