It's definitely not how it's meant to work, yes.

Anyway, error 5 is ENOENT, so it's searching some file which you haven't
put in the right place. My approach would be a bit different:

1. Create a build/root-local directory if it doesn't exist yet
2. Unpack tarballs into build/root-local
3. Create directory build/root-local/system/lpt-bin and link or copy all
   binaries there (basically what postinstall-bin would do when called
   from lpt)
4. Copy libgcc.a to buid/root-local/system/lib
5. Create new disk image, start tyndur, gcc -o test test.c

If it still doesn't work, try using some verbose flags in order to get
the missing file name.

Hope this helps,
