I built it for ARM using native gcc 2.95.1 and binutils and it works great.
Had to patch it for my setup (using it to write a custom firmware), as the default
config is for systems with Angel firmware and such.

I can send you my patch if you like, but it may not be relevant to your setup
(and hence I've not submitted it).

I suggest moving to newer tools if possible.
