Chapter 5 - GCC-3.3.3 Pass2

hi all!

until this Chapter i didnt have any problems, but when I try:

"../gcc-3.3.3/configure --prefix=/tools \
     --with-local-prefix=/tools \
     --enable-clocale=gnu --enable-shared \
     --enable-threads=posix --enable-__cxa_atexit \

i get this config.log:

"configure:633: checking LIBRARY_PATH variable
configure:658: checking GCC_EXEC_PREFIX variable

configure:1664: for each function it appears in.)
configure:1664: parse error before `i'
configure: failed program was:

#include "confdefs.h"

i copied the whole because I think 973 onwards everything could be 
usefull solving the problem....

there are a few things I don't understand:

this is Pass2- why don't we use $LFS/tools/bin/gcc but /usr/bin/gcc296 ?
so I googled for a solution (in the faq I couldn't find this or a 
similar problem)...

what I did afterwards:
*) set CC=$LFS/tools/bin/gcc...didn't change anything
*) set PATH=$LFS/tools/bin...caused many other problems
*) after resetting $PATH to its old value I removed gcc296 from 
/usr/bin....still getting the same config.log as mentioned above

so I think there must be something (maybe variable...i don't know) that 
tells the configure to use /usr/bin/gcc296...

as I'm still linux-newbie and this is my first try to install LFS, I 
don't know how to go on or solve the problem, so please help me if you can.
