Unfortunatelly I don't know exactly what's wrong with the toolchain.
However the error you are encountering is made by md-ld which tells us it's the linker problem.
He tells that he cannot find -lcrypt_old which means that he cannot find libcrypt_old*.a or libcrypt_old*.so file during linking (*.a for static library; *.so for shared object - dynamic library).
My suggestion is to check if there is such file somewhere. If it is then just add -L/directory_where_that_file_is to your toolchain or modify LD_PATH environment.
If it's not then you can try to link (command: ln -s) some existing crypt library and have a hope that nothing significant was changed there.

Why not try petaLinux? http://www.petalogix.com/
It's built by the same professor John Williams. But seems more updated.
I tried the stable version and it works.
