Re: An issue with GCC 6.1.0's make install?

Yesterday I managed to successfully build GCC and all of the

Fortran, Go, Java, Objective-C, Objective-C++, and Link-time
Optimization (LTO)). I did not build JIT support because I have not
herd if it is stable or not.
Anyways, seeing as I didn't (and still do not) want to wait another 12
hours for that to build, I compressed it into a .tar.bz2 archive,

Did you use "make -j 8" (where 8 is roughly how many CPUs you have in your server)? 12 hours seems excessive.

copied it over to another server, decompressed it, and here's when the

Did you copy it to exactly the same path as on the original server, preserving time stamps, and do both servers have identical systems?

problems start. Keep in mind that I did ensure that all files were
compressed and extracted.
When I go into my build subdirectory build tree, and type "make
install -s", it installs gnat, gcc (and g++), gfortran, gccgo, and
gcj, but it errors out (and, subsequently, bales out) and says the
Making install in tools
make[3]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: *** [install-target-libjava] Error 2
make: *** [install] Error 2
And then:
$ gcj
gcj: error: libgcj.spec: No such file or directory

A more common approach would be to run "make install DESTDIR=/some/where", tar that directory, copy this archive to other servers, and untar it in the right location. That's roughly what linux distributions do.

I'm considering the test suite, but until it installs, I'm not sure if
executing the test suite would be very wise at this point. To get it
to say that no input file was specified, I have to manually run the
following commands:
$ cd x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/libjava
$ cp libgcj.spec /usr/bin

That seems like a strange location for this file.

Has the transportation of the source code caused the build tree to be
messed up? I know that it works perfectly fine on my other server.
Running make install without the -s command line parameter yields
nothing. Have I done something wrong?

"nothing" is not very helpful... Surely it gave some error message.
