for some reason i get hte feeling that means it's still looking at the HP 
ones. if i'm right, then how do i switch over to the gnubinutils?
(gnubinutils were made into the directory "gnubinutils-2.11.2" which has 
path "/software/gnubinutils-2.11.2")

yeah, i did the gmake, then configured binutils so that i could use gmake to 
make them, then confired (and am no trying to make) the gcc.

if i'm right and those aren't the gnubinutils, then after i set them up, 
since i've gone through about a dozen tries with the "gmake bootstrap" 
command, should i simply reconfigure, or should i remove the current object 
directory and start over so that i can make complete use of the gnu binutils 
instead of partial use? one of the things i came across doing this said that 
the hp make corrupts a lot of the gnu things, which is why it said not only 
to use gmake, but preferably one that was made ignoring any resident make on 
an hpux machine.

thanx for all the help so far.
