GCC-3.3 (installing & compiling)

Hi, im trying to compile & install GCC-3.3 using the instructions found here: http://www.acm.uiuc.edu/sigops/roll_your_own/devel_env.html

It completes the first step but when i type this line:
make LANGUAGES="c c++" LIBGCC=/dev/null

it runs for around 5 mins then comes up with an error named error 2
What am i doing wrong???

What is the exact error message you get?
The instructions in the URL referenced in the question are for a much older version of Gcc and 3.x has a somewhat different built procedure. According to the configuration document for 3.x (http://gcc.gnu.org/install/configure.html) building in the source tree is not supported. That might be a cause of the error.

And the procedure for building a cross complier has also changed. See http://gcc.gnu.org/install/build.html
