Normally when you build a toolchain you first have to build a compiler
which is able to work without glibc headers (needs only to have C
support). Then you use it to build glibc and afterwards you recompile
your compiler with glibc support and whatever languages you need. 

At least that was the only way I could manage to build a working
toolchain. If you just build a toolchain with faked glibc headers you
will not be able to compile more than the kernel with it.
