I'm just trying to upgrade my existing gcc-3.3.3 to gcc-3.4.x using my LFS
system.  I wanted to have gcc-3.4.x in place before I continue updating
any other part of BLFS.  On my other already existing BLFS laptop, I'm
running gcc-3.3.4 and it too can't upgrade to any version of gcc-3.4.x.  I
always follow the LFS and BLFS book, and install in either /opt/ or /usr/
when instructed.  However, it just won't update to any gcc-3.4.x version. 
Don't know if any of this extra info helps, just wanted to clarify what I
was attempting to do.

Thanks for the tips about logging the "make -k check" output, and checking
on binutils, I'll look into that and see if that gets me any where.
