 I think we're still missing something here, but I don't know what it is.
The original report was 'athlon-unknown-linux-gnu', and the problem
is that he was building 64-bit - that is a 32-bit host.  In my own case,
the logs show athlon64-unknown-linux-gnu for 64-bit.

 See also the discussion about ticket 2648 on -dev last weekend.

 Were you using a 32-bit vm with a 64-bit kernel ?

 ALso, was the original 'athlon-unknown-linux-gnu' reporter in a vm ?

After tragedy, and farce, "OMG poneys!"
