ok, I verfied that a build of gcc svn 4.2.3 builds on my G4 with leopard 
10.5.1. There were no relevant changes between 4.2.2 and gcc-svn 4.2.3.

Though, I do not have fink or macports or whatever installed. I used a 
plain system install.

The Dl_info is defined in /usr/include/dlfcn.h. Might it be possible 
that on your installation another dlfcn.h is available which overrides 
the system one ?

You might ask the fink people if they need a special PATH setting or 
patches?
