Final follow-up:

As much as I'd like to blame the toolchain
apparently the pilot <cough>me</cough> was to blame. :-)

I have succeeded in building the mips-elf GCC and learned
a valuable lesson about keeping my PATH variable clean.

Apparently there were two issues:

o I had a '.' in my PATH. This caused the derived object
   "gcc/as" and friend to be used when the "gcc" directory
   build was intending to use the native as.

o I had an old/partial mips-elf binutils installed and
   visible in my PATH.

After correcting my PATH I now have the following installed:

# mips-elf-ld -V
GNU ld version 2.16.1
   Supported emulations:

# mips-elf-gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
Target: mips-elf
Configured with: ../gcc-4.1.1/configure --target=mips-elf 
--disable-newlib-supplied-syscalls --enable-languages=c,c++ 
--disable-shared --disable-libssp --with-newlib
Thread model: single
gcc version 4.1.1

Thanks to Kai, Khem, and others for keeping me
from "the bottle" and giving me a modicum hope :-)
