Gcc 2.8.1 & 2.95 No rule to make target `3.2'?

I am running on an RS/6000 with AIX trying to compile a bunch
of the latest Perl and Apache modules from CPAN.  3 modules out of ~20
are not building with GCC 2.8.1 so I thought I would compile up GCC 2.95
and give it a try.

Here is what I am doing:
download gcc-2.95.tar.gz from www.gnu.org
unzip and untar. It makes new directory, gcc-2.95
cd to gcc-2.95
Configure finds and uses gcc 2.8.1 and says it works. Reports no errors
`make bootstrap` with gnu make 3.78.1
get error:     make[2]: *** No rule to make target `3.2', needed by
`cccp'.  Stop.
Same problem with `make LANGUAGES=c`

I thought I would recompile 2.8.1 with 2.8.1 but got the same error so
it looks like something may be wrong in my approach or system. I did
RTFFAQ, the known bugs and the aix specific file but found no answers.
Is this an AIX problem or just ineptitude on my part?

Any ideas?

Thank you,
