hello Andrew!
  Sorry for late reply , and messing up a little.
  Going back to my gcc-4.6.0 errors:
A] build was not finding some of the header files , like byteswap.h
/stdio.h etc.
B] error : cannot find -lc

 Above errors were corrected as follows:

1} error [A] was corrected by doing the following steps after uClibc
   completed :
        cp ${CLFS}/usr/i386-linux-uclibc/lib/* ${CLFS}/lib

           As per  KarimYaghmour's book Building Embedded Linux Systems:

            cd ${PREFIX}/uclibc/lib
            for file in libuClibc ld-uClibc libc libdl \
                    libcrypt libm libresolv libutil
                cp $file-*.so ${PRJROOT}/rootfs/lib
                cp -d $file.so.[*0-9] ${PRJROOT}/rootfs/lib
        cp -v cp ${CLFS}/usr/i386-linux-uclibc/usr/include

        Note:    The commands are likely to report that two files
        haven’t been found:
            cp: libuClibc.so.[*0-9]: No such file or directory
            cp: libc-*.so: No such file or directory
            This is not a problem, because these files are not
    supposed to exist. The set of
            commands just shown is meant to be easy to type in, but
    you could add conditional
            statements around the cp commands if you prefer not to
        see any errors.

2] error [B] was corrected by completely reinstall my host OS
   to  Ubuntu-10.10[ext2], that bug was due to ext4 filesystem.

  This way i came upto busybox-1.18.4 setup where again i m getting the
linking problem.
        i m building busybox as STATIC=y
    but anyway it is linking with libm and libcrypt libs of glibc/uclibc .
        even if passing the
            make CROSS_COMPILE="${CLFS_TARGET}-" \
            CONFIG_PREFIX="${CLFS}" install
    parameters for linking, but it is not properly linking with uClibc.

Digging in the buildroot website,help , they instructed to install

 in ubuntu i have searched almost anything but i couldnt find glibc-static.

  please help, thanks
