I may be wrong here, but this looks to me as if you are using the bootstrap 
compiler here and xgcc isn't supposed to be used outside the gcc build 
process, partially because it doesn't really care about your system libraries 
and includes. As a consequence it doesn't provide the right preprocessor 
definitons required to pick the "right" bcopy from you header files.
