Can't remember what I did to solve this, but I got past it somehow. Try
doing a "make install", and see if it installs enough of the compiler to go
ahead with the glibc build. I found I had to build gcc in two passes, firstly
with --with-newlib, and then without once glibc was installed.

Agreed. Funnily enough though, it's better than it used to be. I remember when
I was a lad, before "configure" was around...

Good luck,
