This is good, but over my head.  I suggest reposting this information
on the main gcc list (gcc@gnu.org) with your configure line, the
source you are using (looks like 3.2 release), and the compiler you
are using to build, along with the platform information (uname -a or
similar), and importantly the error message above.

I don't know the answer, but if I had to guess, I would say this is a
problem with an out of date assembler (.s -> .o) and thus a stale
binutils.  The assembler doesn't know how to handle the
BFD_RELOC_32_PCREL relocation in a.out/elf or whatever object format
you are using.  If you don't get any responses, try a newer version of
binutils.  The newer assembler might know how to handle that
