You have a merge conflict in gcc/configure.  This is probably because
the Makefiles rebuilt your local copy of configure and then someone
changed the master copy.  Delete gcc/configure and run a cvs update
from the top of the tree.  You should see just

U gcc/configure

if it prints out any lines beginning with 'C', you still have merge
conflicts in those files, and you have to figure out why.
