I still suffer from this error. May be there cause of it is in
differencies between configure options which were used for build gcc
on my machine and corresponding ones on yours. If I enumerate them
would you be so glad to check them against your options?
Following is the list of configure options:
--enable-threads=posix --enable-languages=c++ --disable-nls --disable-multilib

Thanks in advance.
