We have been experimenting with packaging our GNUPro tools as one

packaged it as an RPM, since you can do that in an SRPM; if you have
multiple SRPMS you have to have some synchronization logic for the
bootstrapping and we don't have that currently.
Binutils cross-builds trivially on its own (see David Woodhouse's
binutils cross patch.)
And if you happen to be building Fedora->Fedora, you can just drop
the target glibc RPM into your sysroot, and then gcc builds trivially
on top of that.
