Problem-Waiting-To-Happen #1:  Building in the source directory
tends to break.  You should read the installation instructions at first.

Problem #2:  What you're seeing is what happens when GCC has been configured
to use one kind of "binutils" (e.g., the native Solaris kind), but the other
kind (e.g., GNU's) is actually found.  If you plan on using GNU binutils,
then you must configure GCC using the appropriate --with options.


Would I had phrases that are not known, utterances that are strange, in
new language that has not been used, free from repetition, not an utterance
which has grown stale, which men of old have spoken.
