  But do you have a *problem* with configuring binutils ?  There was a 
very similar question earlier this week, and someone pointed out that 
configure scripts test the system to find out what it is, and log lots 
of "failures".  In this case, I think gmp.h is used to identify BSD 
systems.  If you do have a problem with binutils, you will need to look 
at config.log in the subdirectory where it fails.

  Insufficient data.  You say it seemed to build ok, so perhaps you 
didn't install it, or perhaps you didn't pass the correct prefix.

  You could tell us the gcc error message!

  Perhaps, your host is missing bison and flex.
