You're a masochist, aren't you? You certainly know that an old
second-hand Toshiba or Sony subnotebook would be a more powerful and
cheaper machine, don't you?

What's the CHOST??? If you mean the name used by gcc to identify the
platform, you can use anything you like, as long as you're consistent
all over the distribution.

If you can get all the programs you want to compile with it, I suggest
uclibc rather than glibc. And if you use uclibc, you might as well
reuse whichever name is produced by the toolchain produced from our
bootimage CVS. Actually, if you're into uclibc, you might even want to
hack the uclibc buildroot from our CVS to produce your distribution.
If you do, please then try to provide intermediate targets that only
compile what's strictly needed for the bootimage.

Arbitrary limits to programs are evil,
particularly when they go either enforced or unenforced.
