That's doing good.  I couldn't get them to build in chapter 5...not sure
as to why...I didn't look into it too far.  removing -all-static from
the ldflags made it compile dynamic (expected).  With it, configure in
each of the dirs faild the gcc test.  (c compiler can't create
executables)  I was curious if this was a known issue or not.  It's the
first time using the hint, so I probably shouldn't be deviating from it
anyways.  :-) Also first time using HJ's binutils.  I do not like the
configure method at all...just kinda figured what the heck...lets try
it.  I'm going back to the stable binutils for now.

SuperRescue 2.1 is host...gcc-2.96 (ick), glibc-2.2.3,binutils 2.11
Probably something stupid, but to bed..I'm too tired to worry about it

Thanks for the works,
