You don't say what version of the book you are using but I assume it is 4.0.

Hmm, it looks to me as if you didn't apply the gcc-3.2-nofixincludes-2.patch
to your Ch 5 gcc. The dead giveaway is the line that reads:-


If the gcc-3.2-nofixincludes-2.patch is applied then you will not end up
with a stdio.h header in that dir.

But you might be able to get away with just simply moving that file out of
the way like so:-

mv /static/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.2/include/stdio.h \

then blow away your gcc-build dir and try again
