You don't.  It's not a full cross compiler - as it says in the script: it
builds enough to work with distcc.

Eric has made a set of scripts to build a full cross compiler
I used it a few months ago to cross compile a kernel and it was fine.

David - the only reason to use the cross compiler that I've supplied (when
building natively with distcc) is so that the cross toolchain is the exact
same source base + patches, kernel headers and glibc that's running
natively -- as there'd most likely be issues if you're compiling using
mismatched toolchains.  However, if you're just cross compiling kernels
entirely non-natively then it doesn't matter if the toolchains don't
