Error when making binutils "collect2: ld returned 1 exit status"

I am trying to build a cross compiler on my Windows XP host that will
compile executable binaries that I can run on my Linux Red Hat 9.0
target, but I get compile errors when building the binutils. I am
running cygwin 1.5.14, and gcc 3.3.3-3.

I have created a /crossgcc/build-binutils directory, and from it I
first execute the "configure" command:
$ ../../usr/src/binutils-20041229-1/configure --target=$TARGET
--host=$HOST --build=$BUILD --prefix=$PREFIX -v


and then, this is the error I get when I run 'make':
/crossgcc/build-binutils/binutils/arlex.c:1: multiple definition of `_main'
first defined here
ar.o(.text+0x7d0): In function `main':
multiple definition of `_main'
first defined here
ar.o(.text+0x27): In function `mri_emul':
undefined reference to `_yyparse'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [ar.exe] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/crossgcc/build-binutils/binutils'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/crossgcc/build-binutils/binutils'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/crossgcc/build-binutils/binutils'
make: *** [all-binutils] Error 2

Any help would be Greatly appreciated (I'm new).
