I am building from  powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu-3.4.4 and so far I have
had crossdev build only:

I altered it to change the location of ROOT & PKGDIR and
It has been working well for me.

Mabe i am misunderstanding its purpose but when I tried to use
cmerge --libc --target i386-creole-linux-gnu

It was unable to build glibc for that target.
It looks like its trying to x-compile
cross-i386-creole-linux-gnu/glibc-2.3.6-r3 instead of sys-libs/glibc.
Though I don't think that matters much.

Calculating dependencies  ...done!
>>> emerge (1 of 1) cross-i386-creole-linux-gnu/glibc-2.3.6-r3 to

Ive have also tried:
cmerge --target i386-creole-linux-gnu sys-libs/glibc
and get an identical error

This is the error ...

checking installed Linux kernel header files... TOO OLD!
configure: error: GNU libc requires kernel header files from
Linux 2.0.10 or later to be installed before configuring.
The kernel header files are found usually in /usr/include/asm and
/usr/include/linux; make sure these directories use files from
Linux 2.0.10 or later.  This check uses <linux/version.h>, so
make sure that file was built correctly when installing the kernel header
files.  To use kernel headers not from /usr/include/linux, use the
configure option --with-headers.

Must mean that glibc needs virtual/os-headers so I tried to built them
for that target...

cmerge --target i386-creole-linux-gnu virtual/os-headers sys-libs/glibc

Yay! It worked!

I've had some success getting around make.profile by making a broken symlink.
rm /etc/make.profile && ln -s /etc/make.profile /etc/make.profile
At the moment Portage doesn't seem to mind but I suppose that could change...
