I looked at the error again, the test that gave the error seemed to go much quicker than the 2nd pass in chapter 5 so i decided to run through the "installing GCC-3.3.1" documentation and retrack my steps. i then unpacked the files into the /sources/gcc-3.3.1 rather than copy it to a build directory i had created of the root. I then very carefully issued the /configure command again and then the make command and then the make -k check. This time the tests have gone ok other then the listed errors suggested in the book. So what did i do wrong the first time? I am leaning towards not issuing the make command between /configure and make -k check. it imay also be possible that moving the files from the source directory may have caused problems. or i may have issued a bad switch command in /configure options. whichever it is it's a user error and hence my apologies yet again. This is a confidence issue with a new OS i shall get better.
