You will not be able to do this with DESTDIR=/ (or DESTDIR unset) in the new
toolchain.  The reason is that you need include files in order to compile
the host tools using the existing libc and includes.

Solution: don't nuke your includes if you will be building in-place.  Let
the later "make includes" step overwrite them instead.  I'll note this to be

: The build order needs to install all include files right near the start.

This won't work because the includes to be installed by "make includes"
reflect a newer libc than you have compiled in /usr/lib...!
