Newbie still having compile problems.

Hi all,
I originally posted this just prior to Christmas, probably not a good time
to ask for help when everyone is so busy having holidays ;-) Anyway I am
still not going so...

I managed to persuade the newer versions of binutils, gcc and newlib to
compile on my machine ok, however when it came to building RTEMS I am still
having a problem.

I verifed the operation of the cross toolset as in section 5.4 of the
"getting started with RTEMS for c/c++ users" doc. The function f.c compiled
ok and I didn't seem to have any problems building gcc so I can only assume
the compiler is working correctly.

However I am getting an error in the configure phase of the build process
for RTEMS. I am configuring with the following switches:

bash-2.05a$ ../rtems-ss-20021118/configure --target=m68k-rtems
--disable-networking --disable-itron --enable-rtemsbsp=mrm332

The error is pasted below.

Any advice would be much appreciated.
