I'm trying this on more than one system all targeting sparc64:
  one from i686-pc-cygwin (by far the fastest machine)
  one from sparc-unknown-linux-gnu (Ultra 10 running lfs-5 32bit)
  one from i586-mandrake-linux-gnu

I now reset the environment before building binutils, gcc and glibc:
  BUILD64=-m64 -mcpu=ultrasparc -mtune=ultrasparc
  GCCTARGET=-mcpu=ultrasparc -mtune=ultrasparc
  PWD=/home/Frans Verstegen/7.0-cross-lfs-20050815-Sparc64/~lfs

binutils goes like this:
  + cd /mnt/LFS-6/build/binutils-2.16.1
  + patch -N -p1 -i /mnt/LFS-6/sources/binutils-2.16.1-posix-1.patch
  patching file gas/
  patching file gas/
  patching file ld/testsuite/ld-bootstrap/bootstrap.exp
  patching file
  patching file
  patching file src-release
  + patch -N -p1 -i
  patching file bfd/elf64-sparc.c
  patching file ld/testsuite/ld-selective/sel-dump.exp
  patching file ld/testsuite/ld-selective/selective.exp

  + cd /mnt/LFS-6/build/glibc-20050926
  + patch -N -p1 -i /mnt/LFS-6/sources/glibc-20050926-libgcc_eh-1.patch
  patching file Makeconfig
  + patch -N -p1 -i
  patching file locale/programs/3level.h
  + patch -N -p1 -i /mnt/LFS-6/sources/glibc-20050926-sparc_tls-1.patch
  patching file elf/tls-macros.h
  + cd /mnt/LFS-6/build
  + mkdir -p glibc-build
  + cd /mnt/LFS-6/build/glibc-build

and I get the same error on all of them:
  In file included from include/tls.h:6,
                   from <stdin>:1:
  nptl/sysdeps/sparc/tls.h:59:3: error: #error "TLS support is
  make[1]: *** [/mnt/LFS-6/build/glibc-build/Versions.v.i] Error 1
  make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/LFS-6/build/glibc-20050926'
  make: *** [all] Error 2

I'm still confused about the glibc-configure fragment trying to detect
the sparc64 TLS support. On all three machines:
  checking size of long double... 0
  running configure fragment for sysdeps/sparc/sparc64/elf
  checking for sparc64 TLS support... no
  checking for sparc64 ld WDISP22 handling... ok

As suggested by Bryan Kadzban:

Fiddling with the configure-fragment (running manually) the
aborts because the crt1.o cannot be found:
  bash-2.05b# sparc64-unknown-linux-gnu-gcc -m64 -mcpu=ultrasparc 
  -mtune=ultrasparc -o conftest.bin   -g -O2 conftest.s
  /4.0.2/../../../../sparc64-unknown-linux-gnu/bin/ld: crt1.o: No 
  such file: No such file or directory
  collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

This disables the TLS support. Is this normal as TLS support is patched
in ?
