With -current as of a week or so ago, I found that the Cobalt port has
some problems building.  I can cross compile from my i386 box with no
problem.  Alas, building on the actual Cobalt runs in to some problems.

After successfully building ld, it appears to continuously try to
configure gcc4;  this is an improvement over previous builds with older
source, in which I got infinite recursion in a check of include files.

I've attached what appears to me to be the significant parts of the log
file;  if that's not enough, I've got another 55,000 lines of this
repeating again and again.  :-)

I'd sure appreciate any debugging suggestions.
