No need to. The compiler does not crash. It cannot find i386-linux-ld.

You need the binutils for cross-compilation. See the buildfaq.

Or, create them yourself. Add the following bash-scripts somewhere in 
your path and make them executable: (Works on Fedora, might be different 
on other systems)

# name this file /usr/bin/i386-linux-as
as --32 $@


# name this file /usr/bin/i386-linux-ld
ld -A elf32-i386 $@
