The build instructions states that make:

"Perform a 3-stage bootstrap of the compiler. This includes building
three times the target tools for use by the compiler such as binutils
(bfd, binutils, gas, gprof, ld, and opcodes) if they have been
individually linked or moved into the top level GCC source tree before

Tried things one at a time and that worked OK.  Has the integrated
build of binutils been tested lately.  Perhaps it works, it may just
need a little more detail in the instructions.

Cheers and Thanks,

Andrew Bell
