I've been playing around trying to get things to build.
Since gcc is in another tree and yet requires installed binutils (*1),
I let the make run long enough to build binutils,gas,ld, and
then did a "make install".  That's how this happened.
[Actually that's not entirely true.  I'm summarizing, but
I'm guessing the effect is the same.]

(*1) and then newlib, in the same tree as binutils, requires gcc. :-(
I haven't tried doing the symlink to gcc thing yet
after the configure rewrite.
Has anyone gotten a "one-tree" tree to build yet under the
new configure regime?
