Glibc on Fedora Core 3 help

I’m tring to put blender on a dreamcast, see my thread here.

 I am using [this article]( on how to put linux on dreamcast .

 Farther down the page, were it has this script
# tar xzf glibc-2.2.4.tar.gz
# patch -p0 < glibc-2.2.4-sh-linux.diff
# mkdir -p build-glibc && cd build-glibc

# mkdir -p ${PREFIX}/${TARGET}/include
# cp -r ../kernel/include/linux \
# cp -r ../kernel/include/asm-sh \

# CC=sh4-linux-gcc ../glibc-2.2.4/configure \ 
   --host=$TARGET --prefix=$PREFIX \
   --disable-debug --disable-profile \
   --disable-sanity-checks \

# make
# touch iconv/iconv_prog login/pt_chown
# make install_root=${PREFIX}/${TARGET} \
   prefix="" install
# echo "GROUP ( libc_nonshared.a )" \
    > ${PREFIX}/${TARGET}/lib/
# cd ..

 I can't get the following to work.
# CC=sh4-linux-gcc ../glibc-2.2.4/configure \ 
   --host=$TARGET --prefix=$PREFIX \
   --disable-debug --disable-profile \
   --disable-sanity-checks \

Here are the last few lines that come up when running the script.

[[email protected] build-glibc]# CC=sh4-linux-gcc ../glibc-2.2.4/configure \
loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... config.sub: missing argument
Try `config.sub --help' for more information.

What I'm asking is if I really need Glibc for the linux dreamcast (which I probibly do) and how I could make this work. I also have Linux Red Hat 9 (not installed) and a extra hard drive. Would Glibc work on Red Hat 9?

 Any help is appreciated, thank you.

glibc provides a whole bunch of code needed by the C compiler, so yeah, you will need glibc if you want to compile anything. glibc will “work on” RH9 as it’s an integral part of the system. I think you can get away with not using it if you stick to using prec-compiled binaries and RPMs but don’t quote me on that.
