problem building egcs-1.1.2
Wed Mar 31 19:45:00 GMT 1999

I've received several suggestions on my difficulties
building egcs-1.1.2 with Mumit's patches.  Many thanks
for all the feedback!  After going through all the
suggestions, and a few more iterations on trying the
build, I think that I might have finally succeeded.
The build now completes without failure, although I
haven't yet had a chance to go through it all to see
if everything was actually built correctly.  Unfortunately
other more pressing commitments will delay that step
for several more days.  (I'm a bit suspicious of the
short time for the build; it took about 100 minutes on
my 200 MHz cpu, where I was expecting several hours.)
The steps that finally resulted in a (hopefully...) 
successful build for me are appended below.  I suspect 
that some of the steps are irrelevant, but at least 
it seems to have worked...
