Do I need to run a complete build first? When I run that make target right 
after configure, it fails in multiple ways when building from r181491:

--prefix=/home/matt --enable-clocale=gnu --with-system-zlib 
--enable-shared --with-demangler-in-ld --enable-lto

By the way, thanks for taking the time to help me work through debugging 
this issue so I can file a meaningful bug. I really appreciate it :)

tangled strands of DNA explain the way that I behave.
