	The tar file contains the sources.  Did you unpack the
distribution into a directory?  The top-level directory will contain a
file named "configure".  "srcdir" is the name in the installation guide
which refers to the directory into which you unpacked the source code
distribution.  You will need a compiler to build GCC.

	You might want to consider downloading a binary release of GCC for
AIX.  While the GCC Project does not provide binaries, the GCC website
links to other sites which provide binaries for various platforms -- see
"Binaries" under the heading "Download" on the left side of the welcome
page.  Bull and UCLA provide binaries for AIX.
