On a recent commit to the branch, HP inadvertently used autoconf 2.58 to
regenerate the gcc directory which unfortunately contains a bug in which it
outputs a relative pathname when an absolute one is requested; autoconf 2.59 was
released a few days later because of this bug.

"make dvi" requires absolute path names (PR13820), so it no longer works with
the current 3.4 branch.
Steps to recreate:

$ ../{relative-path-to-src}/configure
$ make maybe-configure-gcc
$ cd gcc
$ make dvi
Proposed action:

Regenerate the gcc directory with autoheader/autoconf 2.57 which is the
documented version in gcc-3.4's install.texi.

Note: Mainline now uses autoconf 2.59, so it does not have the bug is not
present there.
