Error while installing GCC

Hi Gerardo,

Don't configure in the same directory as the GCC sources.

Don't configure GCC in any subdirectory of the GCC sources.

Make a peer directory, and configure the GCC sources there.

For instance, if your GCC sources are located in:
/export/home/bobby/gcc-3.4.3

Do this:
mkdir /export/home/bobby/gcc-build
cd /export/home/bobby/gcc-build
/export/home/bobby/gcc-3.4.3/configure

(I've found it better to specify absolute paths rather than relative paths.  YMMV.)

HTH,
--Eljay
