So for the snapshot, things should have worked and for egcs-1.0.3a
things should not have worked.
Is that consistent with what actually happened to you?
Note that a well placed symlink in the <prefix>/<configuration>/bin/as
to your gas binary can eliminate this problem. I usually don't recommend
this though (since making the prefixes match is the better solution).
But for your case the symlink is probably the best thing to do for the

Consistend use --with-gnu-as is important to regression testing on
