I'm trying to upgrade from 1.1 to 1.1B (or the src tarballs).
I have a problem when it comes to building the libraries (see below).

Got up to this step - but have problems with libraries. If try make in
/usr/src I get:
cc -O -c i386_get_ldt.c
cc -O -c i386_set_ldt.c
cc -O -c i386_iopl.c
cc -O -c i386_get_ioperm.c
cc -O -c i386_set_ioperm.c
cc -O -c i386_vm86.c
building standard i386 library
ranlib: libi386.a: Inappropriate file type or format
*** Error code 1
I have this mounted via nfs on a sun but that did not seem to cause
problems for building gcc.

What utilities should I use - I have rebuild tsort, ar, ranlib. Where can
I pick up 1.1B utilities (I assume in binary).
Any help would be appreciated.
