On my machine, gcc 3.2 works just fine -- it's binutils 2.13 that
is the culprit.  Use 2.12.1 instead (but be sure to install
the configure.in patch I posted earlier today).

I hope to get a patch from the binutils developers today for
testing; if it works, I expect that the patch will be in
binutils 2.13.1, which I understand is to be released shortly.
