You indicated you are in it for the learning experience, so some clarification 
is probably in order. exec=execute as=assembler. 'as' is part of the gcc 
package thus this indicates that perhaps not everything is as it should be 
with your host installation. I'm not that familiar with Mandrake, but I think 
you should check that the Mandrake gcc installation is complete and 
functioning. configure is trying to compile a simple test program to check 
whether your compiler is suitable to compile binutils.

As you can see, it failed. Check out the things (another)Thomas suggested. You 
should be familiar with the faq. The search engine on the lfs website is a 
great source of information. Entering "You must set the environment variable 
CC to a working compiler" (note the quotes) returned 85 results. Your answer 
is surely there somewhere.

Hang in there. Every journey begins with a single step. Once binutils is under 
way, the first step is taken and it should be downhill from there.
