gcc and binutils must be installed with the same prefix or gcc will not
find the target as and fallback to the native tools which of course
won't work at all as you saw.

In your other mail you mentioned you were using gcc 1.1.2; I recommend
gcc 2.95.4 instead.  gcc 1.1.2 needs a few workarounds in the kernel
source in particular for 64-bit kernels and I've removed all of them
around 2003-05-16 (in the Linux 2.4.20 age) so I'm not sure if egcs 1.1.2
will still work.  Sympthom are compiler core dumps.  Newer doesn't harm ...
