I am trying to install the GNU binutils 2.9.1 on an AIX 4.3.

The build process seems to complete successfully, however, 
while doing a make install, the process dies with the 
following error:

...
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/cory/binutils/ld'
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/cory/binutils/libiberty'
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/cory/binutils/libiberty'

mv -f /opt/binutils-2.9.1/lib/libiberty.a.n /opt/binutils-2.9.1/lib/libiberty.a

make[1]: *** [install_to_libdir] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/cory/binutils/libiberty'
make: *** [install-target-libiberty] Error 2

Anyone know of a workaround for this problem?

Take care,
Cory
