 Did you remember to delete the gcc and gcc-build directories after
the first pass ?  If you didn't, please do so now and try again.

 If it still fails, or you know you deleted them, there is more than
one Makefile in the gcc tree!  So, please look at the messages you
got to see which directory was being used, and then post the lines
around the problematic line in that Makefile (as well as telling us
which Makefile it was, and indeed which version of gcc since you
haven't told us which version of the book you are using).  A single
line on its own doesn't give enough context to see what is going on.
