Problem still exists.  I again didn't look into why, just worked around
it.  Host I'm using is gcc-2.96, glibc-2.2.4, and binutils-
The problem again is when you run configure fromt the root of the
binutils dir, it only runs it in the top dir.  When you go to do make,
it then runs configure agian in all the subdirs, only this time with the
LDFLAGS that you are passing to make.  configure is saying gcc can't
create executables...but this is only when the -all-static is in the
LDFLAGS.  The workaround this time was to not use a binutils-build dir,
then run configure (as is outlined in the hint) in each of the subdirs
under binutils-  Then issue make from the top level.  I
still don't know why it doesn't work.  Again, I'm probably overlooking
something obvious.  At anyrate, thought I'd throw this out there.
BTW..system build was damn well easy.  Thanks for all the hard work.
