Your reply made so much difference, I am now re-looking my whole
download, initial setup, installation etc. The problem exists somewhere
there and I think I'll find it. Although it may be in the SGI's binary

First you should answer Eljay's questions because we can't read your
mind nor your past actions in this affair. Tim is trying to get past
the known problem areas from people not exactly following instructions
for building gcc.
Have you successfully built gcc on this host beforeYes I did many years ago, but just a one time installation, 'did not an
expert make. Many disk changes etc. in the interim caused many
archetectural features to go unobserved, especially the 'gas' 'as'
nuance where the problem exist, I think. Even after reading the log, it
did not appear very obvious. It was not until I was searching the disk
that I found traces of an obsolete mips compiler with an 'as' that the
lights went on.
Can you post your configure options?I was using it with default settings - no options
Can you execute as from the command line?No
If you can execute as and gcc from the command line, report results of
which asIndeterminate, reinstalling with the version in the binutils-2.18 distro
I think I'll get it
Thanks again and my apologies for the confusion
PS: Perhaps the log could be re-written so that the naive or uninitiated
do not misconstrue the 'as' as an adjective rather than a noun,
despite the quotes.
