I'm not familiar with your configuration (I can't even tell what it
    is), however:

This sounds more like a problem with make. Try writing a simple
    program with a 9-char file name, and compiling it directly from
    the command line, using only your gcc, not make.

gcc -v

It might be helpful if you could post the output of gcc -v.
