Compiling gcc-3.4.6 on sparc Solaris 9

I ended up starting over and deleting the previous build. I was trying to build the prerequisites libraries from source by downloading them myself and doing the build.

I then knew of the ./contrib/download_prerequisites script and ran that.
I then did : 
# ../gcc-4.9.4/configure --enable-languages=c,c++,objc,fortran,java --enable-obsolete --prefix=/usr/local --with-gnu-as
and then:
# make

Currently I have the following

sparcv9/libgcc_s.so.1 && ln -s libgcc_s.so.1 sparcv9/libgcc_s.so
/usr/local/sparc-sun-solaris2.9/bin/ld: cannot find libgcc-unwind.map: No such file or directory

I have no idea. Anyone can help me ?
Thanks,
