Question LFS 7.2 GCC make error: Cannot compute suffix of object files


Hi everyone, this is my first post on this forum, and my first attempt at an LFS build.
I get to chapter 5.5, and I have followed everything exactly, but when I try the 'make' command for GCC-4.7.1 I get the following error (My host system is Ubuntu 11.10);
Code:
checking for suffix of object files... configure: error: in `/mnt/lfs/sources/gcc-build/i686-lfs-linux-gnu/libgcc':
configure: error: cannot compute suffix of object files: cannot compile
See `config.log' for more details.
make[1]: *** [configure-target-libgcc] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/gcc-build'
make: *** [all] Error 2
This is the contents of my config.log
Code:
This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by GNU C Runtime Library configure 1.0, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.64.  Invocation command line was

I probably have missed something really obvious, so I apologize in advance. Hopefully somebody can help me out.
