Glibc builds nscd with -fstack-protector. If GCC pass1 does not find a new 
version of glibc (glibc-2.5 I think), it will link to libssp 
when -fstack-protector is used, and then you get this conflict.

--disable-libssp in GCC pass1 is best. Last time I looked at the test in 
gcc/configure, it checks "/usr/include/features.h" for the Glibc version. So 
you will probably need --disable-libssp in GCC pass2 too, because 
gcc/configure is going to check your host again, and you'll run into the same 
conflict in the chroot. --disable-libssp prevents libssp from being built, 
and removes -lssp from gcc specs, so -fstack-protector will only work if you 
have libssp built in to libc.

--disable-libssp can be used again in the chroot when building gcc. Everything 
in this library is included in Glibc-2.8, and libssp is just a waste of
