why do you want to build statically linked tools then?=20

you trashed your libc yourself, not the toolchain build.  you are asking
for something which would in some very rare situation help you (because
you accidentally removed your libc) and the original poster incorrectly
used  sorry, but i still don't see the point.

you are asking for libc backup, in fact (having a backup of libc would
do the same job for you).  how is this related to the toolchain build?
