GCC cross compile tool

I am trying to create a GCC cross compile tool for arm usin GCC-4.8.0 but I am getting build errors. I need some guidance with creating the cross compile tool chain.

Ubuntu 12.10

Steps I followed:

1: Download GCC-4.8 from and untar it

2: From GCC-4.8 folder I downloaded the prerequisities with command below

3: then from a build folder I configured it using below command
../gcc-4.8.0/configure --target=arm-eabi \
--with-mode=thumb --enable-languages=c,c++ \

4: make

but the build fails.

Can anyone point me to the correct configuration to create a cross compiler for ARM A9/A15
