So I tried that, and it didn't help.  It dies with

See `config.log' for more details.

But ia64-unknown-linux-gnu/libgcc/config.log doesn't have any useful
details.  It has

CC='/remote/atg5/jbuck/gcc-4.3.2-ia64build/./gcc/xgcc -B/remote/atg5/jbuck/gcc-4.3.2-ia64build/./gcc/ -B/u/jbuck/cvs.ia64/4.3.2/ia64-unknown-linux-gnu/bin/ -B/u/jbuck/cvs.ia64/4.3.2/ia64-unknown-linux-gnu/lib/ -isystem /u/jbuck/cvs.ia64/4.3.2/ia64-unknown-linux-gnu/include -isystem /u/jbuck/cvs.ia64/4.3.2/ia64-unknown-linux-gnu/sys-include'

and ends with

#define PACKAGE_NAME "GNU C Runtime Library"
#define PACKAGE_STRING "GNU C Runtime Library 1.0"
#define PACKAGE_TARNAME "libgcc"
#define PACKAGE_VERSION "1.0"

configure: exit 1

and the "exit 1" is the only sign that something is wrong.
