There is still something wrong with the quoting here:
Making net release for gcc-3.3-max, pid 2748
echo makeflags: GCJ=i686-pc-cygwin-gcjGCJH=i686-pc-cygwin-gcjh
"$EXTRABUILDARGS" "CFLAGS=$opt" "CXXFLAGS=$opt"
$EXTRA_TARGET_FLAGS' "FLAGS_TO_PASS=$EXTRABUILDARGS"' $BASE_FLAGS_TO_PASS
make: Entering directory `/netrel/build/gcc-3.3-max/libiberty'
make: *** No rule to make target `ASE_FLAGS_TO_PASS'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/netrel/build/gcc-3.3-max/libiberty'
make: *** [all-libiberty] Error 2
Since I don't understand what's supposed to happen, I'm going to avoid the
issue by removing all the needdevoflags stuff.

Weird. Oh well, at least some thing got cleared up.
