I am working on lfs 6.0
I repeatedly have problems compiling the binutils package
it must have something to do with PATH of binaries and linker path, but
i am not sure.

i am able to configure 
but make configure-host gives me an

Configuring in libiberty
configure: creating cache ./config.cache
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles...
checking for makeinfo... makeinfo
checking for perl... perl
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for i686-pc-linux-gnu-ar... ar
checking for i686-pc-linux-gnu-ranlib... ranlib
checking for i686-pc-linux-gnu-gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... configure: error: cannot run C
compiled programs.
If you meant to cross compile, use `--host'.
See `config.log' for more details.
make: *** [configure-libiberty] Error 1

does this make sense to someone?
