the  error was gcc-all target not valid during the make process

I've used arm-unknown-linux-uclibcgnueabi

Gcc 6.2.0
Binutiils 2.27
uClibc-ng 1.0.17
MPC 1.0.3
GMP 6.1.1
MPFR 3.1.4
Linux 4.7.2

The CPU that will run the executables is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400/410
Architecture ARM Cortex-A53 (revision r0p0)
I don't know anything else

GCC is built using --with-arch=armv6 --with-float=soft

On the page below it is shown that QEMU can't be build with musl. I
know that there are patches out there but I don't want to edit the
code of the tarball as I want to keep it as intact as possible.


Like now I've installed uClibc, let's hope that anything will go well
(at least when building the toolchain)
I wanted to learn how to make this toolchain because all I can find
about arm uclibc toolchains is the buildroot package that may be
really neat for what I want to do but it does not let me to study how
the toolchain is made. To build this thing I'm using multiple sources:
the clfs-embedded book, the LFS book and sometimes even the CLFS-3.0
(sysvinit) book.

I'll keep you Informed if you wish
If you have other suggestions or warnings that would be appreciated
