AIX 5.3 gcc 4.1.2 bootstrap error

I had lots of difficulty building 4.2.2 on AIX 5.2.  Problem turned out to
be binutils.  I found that I had to delete binutils altogether.  It was not
sufficient to use the make options to specify the native versions of ld and
as because the stage 3 build process would drill down through the installed
tools and will find and use the Gnu versions.  The result was a compiler
which would not link anything which used STL (libstdc++.a)

I got rid of binutils, did a full bootstrap, and everything worked.

And without binutils you don't need the options for ld and as at all.

Hope this helps.  I was stuck on this for weeks.  (For what it is worth the
compiler could build itself so it wasn't necessary to go back to 4.0.0 to do
the bootstrap.)

Subject: AIX 5.3 gcc 4.1.2 bootstrap error

I was wondering if anyone could help me as I'm at my wits end regarding 
building gcc on AIX. I have the toolkit version of gcc 4.0.0 installed 
(and associated binutils) and I am trying to build version 4.1.2 
(preferable 4.2.x, but I have other build issues on that version). My 
configuration is as follows:

# oslevel -r
5300-04

# gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
Target: powerpc-ibm-aix5.3.0.0
Configured with: ../configure --with-as=/usr/bin/as 
--with-ld=/usr/bin/ld --disable-nls --enable-languages=c,c++ 
--prefix=/opt/freeware --enable-threa
ds --enable-version-specific-runtime-libs --host=powerpc-ibm-aix5.3.0.0
Thread model: aix
gcc version 4.0.0

# gmake -v

--with-as=/usr/bin/as --with-ld=/usr/bin/ld

during the bootstrap I get:

I have tried bootstrapping 4.1.2, 4.1.1 and even 4.0.1, all of which 
have recorded successful builds on the gcc website on AIX, yet all of 
them fail in the same way on my machine. Can anyone help please?

Regards

Ben
