The compiler has nothing to do with this failure. It is all binutils.
The only reason I can think of that this is happening is that your
binutils sources are somehow still out of date... When you type make
install in binutils, where does it say it is installing?
Sorry, I did a mistake when modifying your shell command and I missed a &, thus I actually wasn't compiling, but just continued with the error without me noticing, sorry.

Good, that means it is related to all these changes inbinutils lately that you mentioned would break stuff. Apprently I was able to build, but suffered breakage later.

If I run make distclean and then "cvs -q update -dPA" in /usr/src/external/gpl3/binutils
I get no output, that menas my source dir is clean

I went manually into /usr/src/external/gpl3/binutils/lib and typed:
 make cleandir && make obj && make dependall USETOOLS=never && make install

for lib, usr.bin, usr.sbin

installation looks fine, for example "as":
#   install  /usr/bin/as
install  -N /usr/src/etc -c  -r -o root -g wheel -m 555   as /usr/bin/as

thus, binutils installed now.

and now, the works! Given that, I'll relaunch a build of distribution and see! it looks more promising now.

I still have a problem with objective-c, but let's first see if a full distirbution build finishes and helps or not. I'll give updates tomorrow.

Thanks for now
