All this whinging made me do something which I haven't done in nearly
a decade i.e. compile gcc myself. However, on the same OS but x86_64
the build fails with
/usr/bin/ld: crti.o: No such file: No such file or directory
crti.o only exists as /usr/lib64/crti.o so I guess I'd need to
give configure some options. But it certainly doesn't seem too
bothered about kernel headers.
