Error building on OS X

I'm trying to build a PowerPC-targeted gcc (4.3.3) on a PowerPC OS X
10.5 system.  I have the latest Xcode installed, which comes with gcc
4.0 and 4.2.  The reason I'm doing this is because I want to build a
4.3-based toolchain that can generate Linux binaries for PowerPC
embedded systems.

Unfortunately, I'm not getting very far at all.  When I run this command:

../gcc-4.3.3/configure --target=powerpc-linux --program-prefix=powerpc-

I get this error:

checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error:
C compiler cannot create executables

and config.log says this:

configure:3194: checking for C compiler default output file name
