That sounds rather harsh advice, but if nobody replies with
any direct experience of an error (after, perhaps, waiting for
24 hours - or longer at weekends) it might be the way to go.

Probably, the absence of an 8-bit type :

checking for type equivalent to int8_t... configure: error: no 8-bit type

is the key to this, but the matches on google are for recent
toolchain g++ changes (the sort of thing that usually appears
in obscure places when we venture beyond BLFS or when
we try new toolchain software). Hmm, is $PATH set wrongly ?
(the new stuff in /tools needs to come first).  If so, yes,
starting again would be a good idea.

After tragedy, and farce, "OMG poneys!"
