 You were right all along, it doesn't match : I'll have to blame the
prescription painkillers I'm on (only ibuprofen and paracetomol!).
Sorry, no idea how I misread what the book says.

[ snipping my original reply below this - please don't top post, and
trim what you are replying to. ]

 I've no idea about virtual machines, maybe someone else can offer
suggestions about specific changes (if any) needed - but I don't
recall seeing problems from them apart from selecting the right
kernel options.

 So to recap, hopefully correctly - your include directories from
gcc are not as expected, and the SEARCH_DIRs begin in /tools.

 That last point is correct for 6.10 (hmm, maybe I was looking there
instead of 6.17 when I replied).

 Going back to check my _own_ (64-bit) logs from 7.2 (with a lot of
things collected up), in 6.10 I see that I have:
ignoring nonexistent directory
ignoring duplicate directory "/tools/include"
#include "..." search starts here:
#include <...> search starts here:

SEARCH_DIR("/usr/lib"); SEARCH_DIR("/lib");
(this time, word-wrapping has mad a long line become 3 individual

 I *think* that looks as if your results at the end of 6.17 match,
or are at least similar to, your results in 6.10 ?  Is it possible
that you omitted 'make install' after running the tests on gcc ?

 Other than that, I'm again out of ideas.
