The problematic part is GCC, with its horrid incestuous dependencies
in particular, the way you have to build everything twice because it
insists on building libgcc in the *same* pass as the one it uses to
build gcc itself, and it wants to link libgcc_s against glibc, etc.
For a freestanding implementation (ie. for building the kernel) all you
need is binutils, gcc and libgcc.a for the target (no shared libgcc).
