Without the error output, the report is useless :( please post it.

GCC doesn't support cross-bootstrapping GCCs with anything other than an
identically-versioned native GCC. You'll need to do a full bootstrap of
a native 3.3.4 (I tend to install one-off builds like this in a prefix
of /tmp/gcc so they vanish when the machine reboots), and then build the
cross-compiler with that.

I'm using 3.4.3 here, but I haven't tried building rockbox since I
upgraded from 3.3.4. I really should.
