When building the tools, you are building programs that run on the =20
host, and so -nostdinc is not appropriate.

What version of Mac OS X are you using?  I have had no trouble with =20
cross-building i386 and evbarm releases from 10.2.4[*].

[*] ...except /usr/bin/join on Mac OS X will crash when building the =20
target libraries.  Just compile the NetBSD join(1) on your Mac OS X =20
system and use that instead (I have filed a bug report with Apple about =20=

the problem).
