Another suggestion would be to have all the required sources into a single git repository (including binutils, gdb and newlib), so you just have to clone the repository and compile. This will enable sharing future updates by just pulling them in one single place.
Yet another option might be updating crosstool-NG and using it. I'm looking at it right now.
When it works all we need to build a toolchain is a config file and an overlay file. We can put them to lx106-specific branch of crosstool-NG, the rest it will take care of.
