    Hi Shiv,

  You need to add "--with-gnu-as --with-gnu-ld" to the configure command.
This one came up just 24 hours ago!

  It would also be helpful if you could set your mailer to send plain
text only as a lot of people on this list run Unix or Linux, and your
mail is only readable properly on windows systems - on any other machine
it comes out looking like this:
