| Looks like your assembler doesn't support the dwarf2 directives.  configure
| checks for this with 'assembler dwarf2 debug_line support'; can you
| investigate why that test succeeds?

Now that you marked out the problem, I could see the possible source:

  1) During configuration, configure determines /usr/bin/as as the
  assembler to use:

        checking what assembler to use... /usr/bin/as
   On my system, that version happens so support dwarf2 directives:

        checking assembler dwarf2 debug_line support... yes

   2) During building xgcc is invoking the assembler that happens to
   come first in my $PATH (here a version I installed in $HOME/bin
   long time before my system assembler version becomes newer),
   -not- that determined during configuration.  That ressembles a
   problem encountered when building GCC on Solaris boxes -- where the
   opposite happens. 

So I have two questions:

   a) Shouldn't xgcc use the assembler found by configure?  
   b) Why are xgcc and configure finding different assembler to use?

Thanks for your patience,
