This is definitely *not* a local problem! I am seeing it on a SuSE 7.0
box (i686-pc-linux-gnu) as well, albeit slightly different:

  gmake[5]: Entering directory `/tmp/OBJ-1114-10:33/i686-pc-linux-gnu/libstdc++-v3/src'
  Makefile:374: *** multiple target patterns.  Stop.

And i686-pc-linux-gnu/libstdc++-v3/src/Makefile lines 374ff are:

  Makefile: $(srcdir)/  $(top_builddir)/config.status
        cd $(top_builddir) \
          && CONFIG_FILES=$(subdir)/$@ CONFIG_HEADERS= $(SHELL) ./config.status

That is, this is a direct result of the libstdc++-v3 integration. I guess
it might be related to autoconf et al. not being installed on this system.
