Yes. As a curiosity, I pulled down 4.2.4 and compiled it on my own sandbox and it did fine.

Its been a long weekend with many misadventures. I did not know about the INTERACTIVE method and I copied and pasted the compile command (above) and added -save-temps and it compiled fine. So I then just did "make" in that directory -- which worked. Moved up and did "make" again and that eventually failed with arg list too long. So, I wasn't using *exactly* the right environment.

Yes. Probably I'm going to start over again but here are some clues. First, my build scripts for gcc always do: ulimit -S -d unlimited I can't remember why I've added that over the years. But build script that worked did this:

which is almost what your scripts did. That script worked. As I mentioned, the "make" above ended with arg list too long. I hit that again doing some other path. So, I restarted your process with these changes: 1) I *forgot* to do the CONFIG_SHELL (and I'm paying the price for that. I plan to open a defect on ksh. I've discovered that not only does it make tons of temps but the temps are wide open... a glaring security hole. But, that will take a battle plus a year to get out the door and they will likely fix it for new releases.) 2) I did the ulimit change above 3) I moved my source and destination directories to much short paths (trying to avoid the arg list too long problem). 4) Used a different gcc. Before I was using my newly built gcc 4.5.0 and this last trip I'm using 4.3.1. So far, it is still going but I'm not 100% done with gcc yet but I'm past all the previous failure points. I plan to start over again. I want to redo it with CONFIG_SHELL set, ulimit set, and the newer gcc (at the new location) and see how that goes. Can we set CONFIG_SHELL inside the top level Makefile? I'm going to just add it to my .bash_profile too. One other suggestion, I assumed that the install of the prefix-launcher was going to be a half minute adventure and the big adventure was going to come while using it. My suggestion is mention that installing it will take a long time. Also, give some help (like you just did) about doing things piecemeal if things go wrong. Thanks!!! I'm still plugging. (I haven't read your other email yet). Perry
