Hi Nick,

> However, in the insctutions on building it only says to do a make.

The configure is step #3.

The build is step #4.

Before you can do a make, you need to do the configure.

And, as per the instructions, do not make your objdir anywhere within the
GCC source code directory.  (You can make it a peer to the source code, so
it's "../objdir" relative to the GCC source.)

You'd configure it by:
../gcc-4.3.0/configure

Or use a full path:
/home/nickengland/gcc-4.3.0/configure

HTH,
