"powerpc-elf-ar : not found" and "libgcc2.a" problem (target 'mak e all' or 'make all-gcc')

Thanks for the response. Yes, Dave, I unpatched the (undocumented) patches,
so the libiberty- c- files are in their original state again. I recompiled
all again, making me -fully expectedly- tumble into the mentioned problem.
Recompiling made me notice that it is the second pass that's failing indeed
(making me realize, according to what you mention, that I'm not too far
anymore of building the complete gcc).

So this means it's not such a big problem if this make (i.e., in libiberty)
would be skipped, is it ? (as the system would be a bare PPC- board, or does
this again have nothing to do with it ?). But now, consequently, remains the
problem(, Dave ?), on how I should continue ?

Kind Regards, and a thank-you again,

Philippe Bertin.

(--> Dave, you didn't mean I had to unpatch the -documented- ones I inserted
before forwarding my initial problem, I hope, as without these, I don't get
any further; let me know if you anyway meant these too, please)
