If you search the archives of the gfortran mail list, you should see 
discussion of several ways in which generation of kinds.h for 
libgfortran has been seen to fail.  Almost certainly, this is a 
consequence of a problem which should have been indicated earlier in 
your build.  Correctly updating your gmp and mpfr installations is among 
the necessary steps.  Among other things, the details depend on which 
version of gcc it is, which you didn't care to reveal, and I would as 
soon not hear about.
