This was recently fixed in master[1]. However, I’m not sure what you’re doing 
to get i586-pc-linux-gnu to build gcc at all. If you’ve modified “gcc.mk”, 
could you post it?

Mostly as it’s not very practical at the moment[2]. You can “trick" MXE into 
doing native builds (with the $(PKG)_BUILD_$(BUILD) construct in master), but a 
correct cross-build for *-*-linux-gnu will require the kernel headers and glibc
