Please excuse my jumping in.

But this is my exact problem with SCO's native as and building 
every gcc from 2.95.2 thru 3.1 on UnixWare 7.1.1.

If I try to build gcc using ./configure --with-gnu-as --with-as=/usr/local/bin/as
the gmake bootstrap fails with

     /usr/local/bin/as: Unknown option: -Qy.

Please, how do I fix this?  It's been a thorn for months now.
Thank you!
