[OSX] does a toolchain need to support NPTL for OM?

:) :) :)

After doing some more magical tricks, now the glibc configure with  
NPTL succeeds and the first phase gcc is being built!

So it appears that I have (a still incomplete) gcc that supports C  
(but no C++ and Obj-C and of course no real glibc).

Next steps tomorrow...
