GCC 2.95.2 Build problem

GCC version: 2.95.2
Platform: hppa1.1-hp-hpux11.00
Compiler options: none (compiler won't build)
Source files: none (compiler won't build)

The problem is the following:
After compiling the first stage of gcc (stage1/xgcc) the following command 
is executed:
/usr/local/hppa1.1-hp-hpux11.00/bin/nm /usr/lib/libc.2
(I don't know all the options passed to nm because make doesn't display 
This returns the result: Bad value

When I execute the nm command myself, it also returns Bad value on that 
file.  Eventually
this "goes away" meaning that after several minutes, I can execute the nm 
command myself
and it appears to work.

Upon executing make for a second time I eventually run into trouble with 
some of the
symbols such as __main.  Apparently they are "undefined" even though I saw 
them all
get processed earlier during the make.  However, upon running the make for 
the third time,
things process past this point and then it finally dies upon being unable 
to find cpp.  I looked
for cpp everywhere and it didn't seem to be located anywhere.

Note also that I am using "make bootstrap"

Now I have checked the list of systems gcc was compiled under.  This 
combination wasn't
one of them.  So I am assuming it wasn't tested.  Even so, does anyone have 
any ideas as
to how to solve these problems?  I am also assuming that the first error 
may have cascaded into the other two errors because something wasn't done. 
 But I don't know that for sure.
