hmm, it seems to use an 'interesting' test in hints/,
circa line 228. it assumes GNU ld if neither of the strings:

	ld: Software Generation Utilities

are found in "gcc -v -o ..." output. what does "ld -V" report on
your system?

you can probably run some tests using the block of shell script in
hints/ to isolate what is going wrong. please let me know
what you find :)
