true, but the copying process to /lib is pretty orthogonal to that. if anything, i plan on deprecating the gcc-config logic to only copying to /lib if it detects that /usr is split. as for the missing completely, today you have to: ROOT=/usr/${CTARGET} emerge sys-devel/gcc as isn't the only library you're missing. none of the gcc libs are installed in there (libstdc++, libmudflap, libgfortran, etc...). might be another useful hack script to include in crossdev ... give it a /usr/$CTARGET to transparently sync gcc libs into from your cross-compiler. obviously if you want to run `gcc` on the target though you're going to have to do what i said above with the ROOT/emerge.

there are some things which we do not currently install with the cross- compiler glibc. in the past, we didn't install any /bin or /sbin executables at all, although that's changed recently. quickly checking the ebuild shows that none of the locale helper scripts are installed. it wasn't my original design decision, but i'm open to bringing down the differences. -mike
