All I can think is that it's something to do with 2.0 ?
I normally use 2.4 headers.

No idea,  plenty of others have used it so I know it must be something
with your system/configuration I just can't think what.

Basically,  it will be off the uClinux-dist uClibc for now at least but
it is uClibc-0.9.19 and it shouldn't be hard to use the CVS version.

It's just a file on it's own and doesn't really fit anywhere.  It will
be on the uClinux-elf-tools page like the rest.

Its stage6?  the C++ stage that usually shows up the problems.  libio is
the main offender,

If you only want compilers and intend using the uClinux-dist for libs
etc then you can manually finish the stage6 build ignoring errors when
they occur,  touch the STAGE6 file and run "./build-uclinux-tools.sh cont"
to finish the remaining stages and you should have a working toolchain,
