Can anybody give me a short guide of how to correctly use/install

A './configure && make && make install' yields runnable binaries (gcc,
as, ld etc. in /usr/local) on i386 which again produce runnable
binaries including kernels. Ugly thing is: The produced binaries are
dynamically linked against shared lib's in /usr/local/lib which are
not found at runtime:

  $ ldd /usr/bin/texindex
         -lintl.1 => not found
         -lc.12 => /usr/lib/

-> My mistake (== abuse of toolchain)? Or how to avoid?

Is the toolchain stuff appropriate for producing cross compiler?

Thanks in advance, Markus.
