Building gbd-6.3 together with binutils-2.15 and/or gcc-3.4.3

Dear all,

I am trying to put together a latest&greatest bundle of GNU development
utilities (on RedHat 7.2, RedHat Enterprise 3.0 (Opteron) and Solaris 8
I tried to unpack all sources of binutils-2.15, gdb-6.3 and gcc-3.4.3
into the
same root directory and run configure/make bootstrap in there.
However, the gdb-6.3 seems to contain significantly modified common
(esp. in the bfd/ subdirectory), such that this build crashes.
I tried with various combinations of the bfd subdirectories, to no

Any suggestion you can give? I thought my approach would be a good idea,
since then all utilities would be built on the same basis, but I think I
have to go back to compiling gdb separately.

Thanks a lot,
