Get all the libraries (libm.a libkern.a)  Some of these may be easy
to build under the cross enviroment and others may be a real bitch.
Gcc always has problems with libgcc1.a.  The linker may have some
problems, make the page size 4k.  8k kernels can't be reliably
booted from macos.  Its ok to use the 8k paged linker for the user
land programs but not the kernel.
