I have binutils ready too alongwith the arch specific bits

Hmm. The toolchain supports both MMU and NOMMU. It is also utilised for
building both linux and uclinux and it uses soft float.

Most definitely it doth! :)

I do not need STL or c++ either.

I realised that when I used buildroot for the arm as a test. But I saw
that there was an arm-gcc and an arm-uclibc-gcc that was generated and
so I assumed that it was still a wrapper. Neat though.

Anything else, in particular ?
