Failing to build a cross-compiler


I'm trying what I think should be a relatively elementary cross-compiler.

host is i386-pc-linux-gnu (actually PII running RH-5.1)

$ target=sparc-sun-linux-gnu
$ prefix=/usr/local/cross-sparc
$ PATH=$prefix/bin:$PATH
$ cd $prefix/binutils-build
$ ../binutils- --target=$target --prefix=$prefix -v
[snip successful output]
$ make all install
[snip successful output]
$ cd ../egcs-build
$ ../egcs-1.0.3a/configure --target=$target --prefix=$prefix -v
[snip successful output]
$ make all
[snip most of output]

What am I doing wrong?  I have followed the crossgcc FAQ nearly to a tee.  When
this is successful, my plan is to do the same on a Sequent NUMA-Q to compile
SPARC/Linux kernels.  However, I currently have the same problem compiling the
cross-compiler on the NUMA-Q.


P.S. Please cc to me; I'm not subscribed to crossgcc.
