Installing GC 3.0.1 on COMPAQ alpha

I am trying to install GCC 3.0.1 on a Compaq alpha 4.0G server (TRU64 UNIX).

I understand, from the configuration guide, that binutils 2.11.2 is not
supported yet so I configured gcc without using the --with-gnu-as
or --with-gnu-ld. Everything seemed to compile and install ok but compiling
some code causes several hundred "weak symbol multiply defined" warnings.
Thus I assume that I have compiled gcc 3.0.1 with the compaq linker and

I guess that these are coming form the (compaq) linker so I downloaded
binutils 2.11 and compiled that but I got warnings that the versions of ld
and gas are not supported on TRU64.

My question is this:
What is the earliset version of binutils that I can use to compile gcc 3.0.1
and what is that latest version of binutils (specifically the linker and
assember) that is supported on TRU64?
e.g. If I download binutils 2.9, will I be able to compile and install it on
my alpha and having done that can I use the gnu ld and gas to compile and
install gcc 3.0.1?

Thanks for any help you might be able to provide.
