I haven't looked at these, but odds are there are some botches in
their instructions.

You shouldn't need bison, flex or sed to install gcc (though you may need to
get a patch from HP to fix their broken sed).

?!?  This doesn't correspond to any official release I'm aware of.  It
almost sounds like a hacked up version for hpux11.  I recommend you instead
get an official release from the FSF.

This sounds like whatever sources you downloaded had already been configured,
and 99.9% of the time that's a bad thing.  Go get an official release and start
