--prefix=/usr/local would have been correct.

However, as I tried to explain in another mail recently, using
--prefix=/usr/local is error-prone at best and should be avoided for
cross-toolchains unless you exactly know what you are doing.

The error message look as follows:

Where does libintl.a come from? binutils-2.10 doesn't have nor use
