You are in chapter 6 at the groff installation. This means that you should
already have done the chapter 6 installation of GCC.

However, look at this fragment from config.log

You're obviously still running the chapter 5 GCC. Apparently you forgot to
install GCC in chapter 6. This is bad. You will have to redo chapter 6
from the point of the GCC installation. 
IMPORTANT: DO NOT continue at the groff installation after the chapter 6
GCC installation. You have to do everything in chapter 6 again beginning
with the GCC installation, i.e. GCC-3.3.3,

Be more careful next time. Skipping packages is VERY BAD. You may want to
check again that you've not skipped other packages. If you're not sure
it's better to restart chapter 6 from the beginning.


You cannot teach a square to be round.
