	Those are pre-built binaries (and libraries) packaged in a tar
file.  There is no "configure" file because one simply untars the file
directly into the filesystem.  It is not a source distribution, it is a
pre-built binary distribution for AIX.  One configures and builds GCC from
a source ditsribution, not from a binary distribution.

	I do not understand what you are expecting and what is confusing
you.  Maybe someone else on the gcc-help mailinglist can explain it better.

	P.S. Bull does not appear to have a version of GCC 3.0.4
available.
