Post subject:  Building gcc in cygwin for cross-compiling for MIPS linux

Hi,
I'm following the guide here http://wiki.osdev.org/GCC_Cross-Compiler, my target being
Code:
mipsel-unknown-linux-gnu

and I'm stuck at
Code:
make all-target-libgcc

which fails with
Code:
In file included from ../../../gcc-7.2.0/libgcc/gthr.h:148:0,
                 from ../../../gcc-7.2.0/libgcc/libgcov-interface.c:27:
./gthr-default.h:35:10: fatal error: pthread.h: No such file or directory
#include <pthread.h>
          ^~~~~~~~~~~
compilation terminated.
make[1]: *** [Makefile:915: _gcov_dump.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/alikim/src/build-gcc/mipsel-unknown-linux-gnu/libgcc'
make: *** [Makefile:11866: all-target-libgcc] Error 2

What do I need to do to fix this error?

Also, since I'm not building a OS, just a program that needs to run under linux, will
Code:
--without-headers
limit my ability to use standard C libraries in my code?

Thank you!

The wiki instructions are for building a freestanding compiler. If you want a hosted compiler, you'll need to build --with-sysroot and install the libc headers into the sysroot before building libgcc, libstdc++ and other GCC support libraries. You cannot use --without-headers and expect to use the C standard library.

I'm following the wiki instructions for building a freestanding compiler, it's not what I want but it's a start...

The point is, it doesn't work. I copied all the instructions from the wiki and it fails as I described above, I'd like to know why, that's my question.

As per wiki, binutils were compiled with --with-sysroot and gcc with --without-headers.

Let me reiterate: You cannot build a Linux compiler --without-headers. You need to pass --with-sysroot to the GCC build and compile your libc to that directory (using your cross compiler, that was built during all-gcc), before building libgcc.
