 With gcc4, if a specs file doesn't exist (which is true before we
make the adjustment) it derives the values.  So, that is why it
still spits out the specs file.

 You have correctly used back-quotes aka back-ticks ('`') when you
showed us the command, so I'll ignore misquoting as a possible cause
of the error.  What output do you get from
 dirname $(gcc -print-libgcc-file-name)     ?
