 Not after the _final_ readjustment, no - at this point it should be
ready to build for the final system.

 The big problem here is the gcc version Tarsier is using -
it doesn't match what's in the book.  I know people are using the
4.3 series, but I don't know what changes they've had to make.

 Trying newer versions, after one is familiar with the build process,
is not a bad thing.  However, expecting to use a new version of gcc
(rather than a new point release) without the instructions changing,
is "optimistic".  And asking for help without mentioning the
variation(s) one has made doesn't help anybody.
