I'm quite sure that I did exactly that just without the --prefix option. 
Anyway, I deleted everything, carried out the steps you wrote above and 
now it seems to work... right now he's downloading all the stuff needed 
for the build.

Ok, thanks - I probably wouldn't have found that :) I didn't attach my 
.config as things seem to work fine now.

Later I will have to try to use alphaev56-dec-osf as the target system, I 
think, but first I'll try to build the example...

Thanks again,
