Sure you can, but xscale-elf is not targeted to NetBSD, so you can't
use that target. You must use arm-netbsdelf.
NetBSD 1.6 has complete cross-build support, and includes a
cross-hostable toolchain. You don't *need* to download gcc and
binutils from the FSF to cross-build it.
You can do it, however, but you're going to have to manually deal with
the libstdc++/libgcc/crt* differences from current GCC releases.
FWIW, GCC 3.2.x does not support the ABI used by NetBSD/arm. GCC 3.3
will, but 3.3 is not released yet.
