While trying to bootstrap gcc I got an error message from hp-ld
during the first stage, where ld complains about missing library symbol

something like:

/usr/ccs/bin/ld: ../libiberty/libiberty.a: Missing library symbol table

Neither /bin/nm nor binutils-nm are able to read the archive, so
I wonder what went wrong.

Some hints:

first in PATH is my gnu-stuff (acces to binutils, gcc-3.0, flex etc.)
configuring with:

../gcc-20010716/configure --prefix=/opt/FREE-SOFTWARE/gcc-20010716
--enable-languages=c,c++ --enable-version-specific-runtime-libs
--disable-maintainer-mode && make -j 8 bootstrap
