Did you use _your_ gcc while running the previous configure? If gcc was
Fedora's one, try the similar with your hand-built gcc.

Also I begin to think the problem is in the specs of Fedora gcc. What's
the output of the following command (gcc is Fedora's one)?

gcc -dumpspecs

The same for me with both 2.17 and 2.16.1. Moreover, I came to
conclusion both binutils versions don't have the --hash-style option
as well as both do have -hash-style one (note the _single_ dash instead
of a double one).

Nothing but perfection
