checking sysdep dirs... configure: error: The arm is not supported

Dear Carlos,

It is not a problem related to GCC, I think. Because even if I added
GCC to bashrc or bash_profile, there is still the same error.

[point@digital build]$ gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
Target: i686-pc-linux-gnu
Configured with: ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/gcc-4.6.2
--enable-threads=posix --disable-checking --disable-multilib
--enable-language=c,c++ --with-gmp=/usr/local/gmp-5.0.4
--with-mpfr=/usr/local/mpfr-3.1.0 --with-mpc=/usr/local/mpc-0.9
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.6.2 (GCC)

[point@digital build]$ gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 4.6.2

Attached is the full text of config.log, and I couldn't see any way to
solve this problem.

Thanks again.
