The file cpuid.h is provided by gcc.  Since you do not have the file,
it is possible that the gcc build in section 5.5.1 failed.  You could
try repeating that section and carefully checking the output.

On my machine the cpuid.h file appears in

Tony (echo 'spend!,pocket awide' | sed 'y/acdeikospntw!, /l at omcgtjuba.phi/')
