Actually, sorry for my terse e-mail. I tried both an in-tree and 
out-of-tree build. I get the same behavior. I should mention that I 
consider my build environment somewhat same as I've built 2.95.3 and 3.4.3 
on this box frequently.

So I'm not 100% sure what the issue is. Here is the snapshot of the 
out-of-tree build failure:

metal:~/exp-toolchain-m68k/build/gcc-build myg$ make
make[2]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
rm -f stamp-h1
/bin/sh ./config.status config.h
config.status: creating config.h
config.status: config.h is unchanged
test -f config.h || (rm -f stamp-h1 && make stamp-h1)

`mempcpy' makes pointer from integer without a cast
make[1]: *** [dcigettext.o] Error 1
make: *** [all-intl] Error 2

With an out-of-tree build I can't easily fix it (autoconf & automake 
aren't my specialties). If necessary I can put a configure log and my 
build scripts on a webserver somewhere.

But the relevant portion of building GCC is:

   tar xzvf ../tarballs/gcc-core-${VER_GNUCC}.tar.gz
   mkdir gcc-build
   cd gcc-build
   ../gcc-${VER_GNUCC}/configure                        \
               --prefix=/install/dir                    \
               --target=m68k-unknown-elf                \
               --enable-languages=c                     \
               --with-headers=/path/to/newlib/incl      \
   gnumake install

I should also note that I am using the -no-cpp-precomp option with my 
native CC as I've had the precompiled headers on OS X cause problems 
building GCC.
