Which --target did you pass to configure?

powerpc-rtems-ranlib indicates you to have used --target=powerpc-rtems

This should be --target=powerpc-rtems4.9 (to use the powerpc-rtems4.9
toolchain) rsp. --target=powerpc-rtems4.10 (to use the powerpc-rtems4.10

Background: Somewhat oversimplified, the TARGET specified in
--target=TARGET is the toolchain prefix of the toolchain to be used.
